THANKS. (2019-11-15) 임준우: 사파리의 읽기도구 같은 확장 프로그램이며 ... 현재 가장 유용하게 쓰고 있습니다. 특히 텍스트의 크기 조절이나 폭(너비)를 조절하는 것.... 보이는 레이아웃 그대로 PDF저장이 된다는 것 추천합니다.! (2019-11-13) Jayesh Raj Srivastava: Simple and useful (2019-11-11) David Gilks: I like this reader extension because it can block images easily whereas others don't. (2019-11-10) Ugurcan Altiok: kullanmayı beceremedim (2019-11-02) 志詳王: stupid ADDON (2019-11-01) Darrel Eddings: Thank you. This exceptional. I have been looking for this exact extension since Clearly bit the dust. I have only one question, and if it isn't possible now, a feature request: I frequent story sites a lot that have stories running over several pages. I have noticed that at times readerview stops after xNumber of pages and will not go further. I looked and either didn't see the setting or didn't understand it is I did. Is there a setting that allows all pages to be loaded and/or is it possible to add that feature? Clearly had that feature "baked in"> I am in no way criticizing your work, this is a wonderful program, thank you. (2019-10-30) Alex Alexis: Было хорошее расширение до того момента пока не вырезали из него Русскую озвучку, теперь оно стало бесполезным. (2019-10-27) BIO-FASTA-STUDIOS _: I used mercury reader for a while and liked it. It no longer works now that I've switched to a better browser and I found this extension after trying a few others. Very glad I did, its certainly better than mercury reader! (2019-10-23) 凯李: 最好用的浏览器阅读拓展 (2019-10-19) Xewxewokê Xewlêheram: ji berê de bi kar tînim û min gelek xêra ev pêvek dîtiye. pîrozkirina pêşdebirên wê -bi rastî jî- heq û pêdivî ye. (2019-10-14) Rida Zhang: Holy crap!! Why I didn't know this earlier?! You really need to do more work on advertising, dude. 这玩意儿不知道简直是损失💘 (2019-10-12) Serge Tanguay: La fonction d'enregistrement permet de télécharger le fichier HTML correspondant et de voir la page telle qu'elle apparaît sur le web en utilisant Quick Look sur macOS. Une valeur ajoutée. (2019-10-12) Robert Van Allen: Installed for only a week but working out nicely. Recommend doing side-by-side comparisons before printouts. Perhaps not perfect on every Website but certainly has value. (2019-10-12) Hào Phạm: App này có phần đọc văn bản rất tuyệt vời khi cần nghe tiếng Anh (y) ! (2019-10-11) Daki Carnhof: Amazing! Works well also on Github markdown. Thank you! (2019-10-06) عاطف بن علي: Great tool ! Are you planing to add support to Right-to-Left languages?! Thank you. (2019-09-30) Conor Mackey: never written a review for an extension before but I felt like I needed to for this. I'm a college student and I use this all the time for reading articles and other things online for my classes. Very useful extension, especially for some of the older websites and blogs I have to read from. (2019-09-20) Giulio Bordonaro: Great! Only feature missing: the chance to adjust line height in the main menu. With this one (which I imagine should be easy to implement), it will earn the 5th star! Thanks P.S.: you can manually set line height and other stuff in the "Custom styling". (2019-09-12) Rick Powell: Perfect for its purpose. I can see no flaws and a great attention to detail. Grateful. As long as so many webpages are designed so poorly, we need this extension. It saves my eyes and prevents headaches and eyerolls. (2019-09-07) Gary Hughes: Does what it says. Makes reading that little less complicated by displaying the text in a more readable form. Would recommend. (2019-08-30) Avijit Chakraborty: Excellent reader it does what it meant to do takes away clutter changing fronts and lots of exceedingly realistic features.Well done guys . (2019-08-30) KEE CHOW LOW: 👍 (2019-08-26) Velin V: It does not have a deletion mode, where you can delete elements yourself, like another extension called "Just Read". If the developer offers that, I will give this extension another try. For now, it's been removed. (2019-08-21) T4iga: Works mostly great but I am really missing the abiltiy to adjust line spacing in steps. If you set large font sizes the 3 options of "largest", "medium" and "no line spacing" are simply not enough. Also this should easily be possible as I have tried manually setting line-heigth to 1.6 instead of the stupid fixed pixel values and it worked like a charm but I don't want to manually do this every time I set a large font size. EDIT: Never mind, just add the custom style body{ line-height: 1.5; }
