  • (2022-08-07) Huy Zing: Excellent for pre-processing before printing to PDF I don't actually use this to read. I use it to print very nice PDFs of online pages. And it's perfect for this job.
  • (2022-08-05) Майонез Кетчуп: add times new roman
  • (2022-08-03) Song K.: Only mad I didn't discover this earlier. Literal perfection for an extension and is a must-have.
  • (2022-08-03) Youssef Cherrouq: Best app for reading, shame on google chrome for not having this firefox app in the browser by default
  • (2022-07-26) Dilson Santos: Muito bem feito, limpa todo lixo publicitario permitindo ter acesso ao conteudo que de fato se está procurando.
  • (2022-07-21) Kantaka Lor: Frequency update, support Text to speech very well
  • (2022-07-19) Noor Aldeen: A good extension with many functions.. Thank you
  • (2022-07-11) Nor Azila: Must have!
  • (2022-07-01) Azly Abu: MUST HAVE!
  • (2022-06-24) Bruno: Já utilizo por mais de um ano. Ele funciona muito muito bem mesmo. Só valta implementar rotinas de salvar/carregar na nuvem, a fim de que possamos criar um portfólio de leituras que nos chamaram atenção, possibilitando salvar os grifos, sticky notes etc. Eu até pagaria para ter estes recursos!
  • (2022-06-20) Nadya Lev: I'm visually impaired and this extension has made it possible for me to read the web again. It's so thoughtfully made, with so many options for customizing. I love it. I could never live without it!
  • (2022-06-15) l: Spyware.Trash. Not working.
  • (2022-06-09) Pedro Henrique Oliveira de Souza: A extensão ajuda muito para leitura de artigos de jornal. Além de simplificar a página, permitindo o foco no texto, a ferramenta ainda conta com serviços de transcrição de texto em fala, permitindo-nos ouvir o texto, caso seja de nosso interesse.
  • (2022-06-06) Sandeep Karmacharya: One and only one extension, I am reviewing here. Best app to improve readability.
  • (2022-05-31) Brandon Vigliarolo: I'm a journalist, and this extension has been invaluable. It declutters web pages and - most importantly for me - lets me make highlights in articles. If reader view is closed and reopened the highlights remain, which is even better. This thing has saved me so much time and made staying organized so much easier - kudos and praise couldn't be higher!
  • (2022-05-30) Unknown Mailbox: Brilliant
  • (2022-05-23) Martin Chmelar: Excellent extension, I use it in all Chromium browsers for years.
  • (2022-05-22) Jesús García Gutiérrez: La mejor extensión de lectura para Chrome. Falla en muy pocas páginas (sobre todo falla en foros) pero la personalización que tiene y lo que me ayuda a leer es fascinante. Muchísimas gracias.
  • (2022-05-14) Nicolas Compain: Presque parfait. Les moteurs de synthèse vocale sont excellents. J'aimerais juste voir la possibilité de lancer automatiquement la synthèse vocale dès l'ouverture du mode lecture.
  • (2022-05-12) Javier_MDQ: Muy simple y personalizable a la vez, diferentes opciones que lo hacen indispensable. Excelente
  • (2022-05-01) Pat MySecret: This is a GREAT reader viewer with extensive capabilities! The option that impresses me right off is that you can edit the view! Excellent! I like the view layout better than anything I get with other viewers. I also keep a Reader Viewer that has an option to open automatically.. that one is my default. I also notice that this extension doesn't "play nice" with my word filter and copier extension the way the other Reader Viewer does, but I am still VERY fond.
  • (2022-04-23) Tarek Elsayed: Perhaps the best reader view extension!
  • (2022-04-22) ht_x: Just great. Highlighting, editing, note taking, saving. Everything you need for reading in a browser. Perfect in every way. Thanks for such a great extension.
  • (2022-04-19) Pedro Vieira: Great for all you can customize and for the simplicity of it all, however, it lacks a way to easily export your highlights -- a Json file in a separate page is too bothersome
  • (2022-04-15) 庶民player: 满足了我对阅读模式的期望
  • (2022-04-15) 小丑魚: 可應用的網站較多, 簡單好操作
  • (2022-04-13) R. Thomas Murphy: Fantastic extension. You can customize your browsing experience so easily with Reader View.
  • (2022-04-12) James Nguyen: 2022 0412. love it
  • (2022-04-08) xia di: Best reader app I tested so far.
  • (2022-04-07) Jamie Ng: 2022 0407. 746kb, 2nd most review
  • (2022-03-29) Jordi Ustrell: Es una canya. Desde que la tinc instal·lada faig que les pàgines web de les que trec informació siguin documents, evitant tot el soroll dels anuncis i continguts afegits que son brossa. Fa anys que necessitava una eina així. L'opció de poder editar el document un cop capturat es el toc final doncs permet per ex. eliminar texts del document original que només tenen sentit en la consulta online pero que son irrellevants en un pdf (per ex. punxa aquí per veure el vídeo)
  • (2022-03-27) Toast4Me: Amazing! As a student when I'm reading articles and studying from websites, I hate the random clutter on the sides of the page. Reader View removes all the clutter and only keeps whats important. Changing the page colour and the ability to change the font size also adds a nice touch and making reading much easier on my eyes. Overall, highly recommend especially if your doing a lot of researching and reading online.
  • (2022-03-19) Zach Greco: I don't why I initially overlooked this and left it languoring in the inactives. BIG MISTAKE... It has everything needed to filter all the distractions so carelessly included in nearly every webpage
  • (2022-03-18) Nick Uva: Very clean, superior to others of its type in Chrome and Brave. Is there a keyboard shortcut to initialize it?
  • (2022-03-18) PluginUs. Net: Очень удобно, продуманное решение
  • (2022-03-16) Sajeela A: Amazing. This is the best readability extension I have seen so far.
  • (2022-03-16) shailendra singh: very very usefull
  • (2022-03-14) Alexander Panzeri: per quanto mi riguarda manca solo una cosa: il font Open Dyslexic
  • (2022-03-14) Yannick Burky: Tried them all. This is the best. And it's free.
  • (2022-03-10) Joey Jolley: It's a good app but whenever I use the IBM Watson voices on the "North America" section on wikivoyage.org the voices stop reading after a bit.
  • (2022-03-06) Benjamin McGrath: Really great! Is there any hope of it coming to Safari?
  • (2022-03-05) Amir Hafez: Simple, easy to use and customizable.
  • (2022-03-04) akkanee jatanavin: Great
  • (2022-03-03) Erwin Cott: Très bonne application, remplit parfaitement le job
  • (2022-03-03) Alec Kinnear: Reader View is an excellent reader. What's even more important than the details of whether it's a little better or a little worse than other readers is the privacy policy. "Does not collect user data". This is the kind of reader any user who cares about his or her privacy should be using. This compares to others like Clearly, whose privacy policy reads as follows: "clearlyreader.com built the clearlyreader.com service (including all apps we provided) as a Commercial service.The app does use third party services that may collect information used to identify you....third party service providers used by the app: Google Play Services, Firebase Analytics, Fabric, Crashlytics, Intercom, Sentry, Log Data."
  • (2022-03-01) Erica von Trekkynerd: I really like this extension. It really helps to simplify webpages. I wish it gave a white background option, the "light" option is slightly grey and (while likely works very well on a tablet) looks off on my large monitor.
  • (2022-02-28) Lynn Baker Ferrell: Was a blessing this app is for me! Can't wait to see what comes next!
  • (2022-02-26) Chandra Prakash: good experience
  • (2022-02-21) Tutchh Jeev: Although I knew about this extension for a while, I started using the extension only today. Its amazing. I found the read-aloud feature extremely useful and helps you cover more than what you could in a single seating if you were to just read. One enhancement in this feature would make it much more useful. "Abbreviations should be read as separate letters instead of as a word." When you are only listening, this would give you a correct understanding of the article you are reading. Thanks a lot.

    Where the GDPR privacy policy warning is there, you just want to import it, not the real Web site! :-(
