  • (2021-02-09) Tang Yiming: 试了几个插件,最后保留了这个,提2个建议:1、增加文字宽度,虽然调到最大,两边还是有空余,能再宽点就好了;2、能自动预载下一页,至少可以显示下一页的链接,这样就不用退出阅读模式,打开下一页再开启阅读模式
  • (2021-02-08) Jacintha M: I was trying to save a pdf of an article but the top part of every page was obscured by an advertising banner. I view advertising banners as an expected nuisance but this particular banner pushed me over the edge. Then I found this extension - it's so intuitive and works great. Also, sans all the pictures and adverts, the article is now 4 pages long instead of 9. Such a brilliant extension.
  • (2021-02-07) F L: Just works perfectly for me, great extension.
  • (2021-02-06) Michael Poliakov: Most used by me extension

  • (2021-02-03) u f: to me this extension has the perfect amount of settings. enough to get it to look how you like while still beeing easy to set.
  • (2021-01-31) Oleg K.: Пользуюсь не первый год. Очень доволен. Разработчикам большой респект и уважуха :)
  • (2021-01-29) Luke Siragusa: I love the extension and use it daily. No complaints and more options that I've need for. A minor area of consideration: I'm running silver metal theme (off grey) with Chrome which basically renders the 'Reader View' icon atop the browser invisible. A more distinctively colored icon would solve this.
  • (2021-01-26) Michael Neeley: Easily the best extension for granting finite control of your viewing while also stripping away the frustration of ads, be they banners, pop-ups or side-bars - everything is stripped away but the text!
  • (2021-01-21) Вадим Румян: Спасибо! Именно то, что нужно.
  • (2021-01-19) BlueHorn07: finally, I found wonderful reader extension 👍 This ext supports latex & mathjax equation!!! DESERVE TO GET FIVE STAR! 💋
  • (2021-01-17) Sandu FRZ: super
  • (2021-01-15) Konstantin Kruglov: awesome. very powerful and works for most articles.
  • (2021-01-12) Vinayak Mhetre: Superb addon. "Reader View + Voice" all in one. Above all its free. Will be happy to support as well very soon for such apps.
  • (2021-01-12) León Felipe Téllez Contreras: This is a great reader view! I've been looking for an extension that has plenty of option and is easy to use. I finally found it.
  • (2021-01-11) David Shaffer: Overall its a great app! I really like the TTS module and the option to select which engine and voice to use. It's very customizable and after a few days of tinkering with it, I haven't found any dislikes. I have not used the print feature yet, but that's not super important to me. I do highly recommend reading the FAQs...it will save you a lot time up front.
  • (2021-01-02) nocturnal digitalist: UPDATE. NO REPLY FROM DEV. REQUESTING TO ADD MORE FONTS. ADD MORE OPTIONS TO DECREASE AND INCREASE WIDTH. Wonderful. Hoping for option for different fonts apart from sans serif and serif. Also TTS feature has only american voices for english which makes them worst as they cant speak non-american or non-english words at all. Please other english voices from other countries as well. Can you also launch an android version app for offline reading of webpages by saving them like chrome or brave or opera does while travelling with same features? Thanks.
  • (2020-12-24) TRWE_2012: Bu eklentiyi kurduğum her tarayıcıda kullanmayı alışkanlık edindim.Kullanımı baya kolay ve sonuç odaklı ......Herkese tavsiye ederim...
  • (2020-12-22) João Carlos Alves de Sousa: I still use Mercury because of the font option. The Arial font is very annoying to read.
  • (2020-12-22) Ben Warren: Pretty nice app - except printing cuts off all but page one (on mac)...
  • (2020-12-08) Boris Lopez: Excellent, I can tell a lot of thought and effort went into this extension. Nice touches like highlighting the words as they are spoken put this extension in another level. Thank you
