It's just You and Your writing, thanks to a distraction-free design. ⯈ You don't have to remember to save your work. Difree autosaves your writing. ⯈ You can copy to Clipboard rich text, plain text and Markdown version of your writing. ⯈ You can use Difree on any Chromium-based browsers, such as Chrome, Opera, Brave, Edge or Vivaldi, on MacOS or Windows. ★ How does Difree help, exactly? ★ ⯈ With Difree, you get focused ⭢ Our goal is to create a calm and distraction-free writing space. ⭢ Whether you want to write a longer e-mail in Gmail, start a thread on Reddit, post something meaningful on Facebook, or reply on Twitter - Difree is there for you. ⭢ No more distractions - just a blank page, simple and elegant text editor and you with your thoughts. ⭢ Difree works offline, too. So disconnect from Internet, if you need more focus. ⯈ With Difree, you get comfy ⭢ Our goal is to create a simple and elegant writing space. ⭢ Anytime you want to write something, your comfy and beautiful text editor is ready to be used among millions of websites, text areas and forms. ⭢ No more fuzzy text editor or pages that force you to write in a single line (thank you, Facebook Messenger!). You have got all the space you require. ⯈ With Difree, you get private ⭢ Our goal is to create a private and safe writing space. ⭢ What you are writing is none of our business. We don't know what you are writing and what you are doing with your browser. We want to know as little as possible about you. ⭢ No more dirty privacy compromises. We know, there are analytical scripts inside the website or extensions that, under the guise of being helpful, collect and analyze what's written in text fields. We don't do that, and we help to prevent from doing that. Check our privacy policy and see what we know about you. If you have any questions, considering privacy, drop us a line: [email protected] ★ Privacy practices ★ ⯈ What is the single purpose of the extension? We want to help user writing by showing overlay with rich text editor and creating distraction-free environment ⯈ Permission justification - Storage The content of the editor is saved locally for later usage. We don't have access to the content. ⯈ Permission justification - Tabs The extension requires tabs title property. It is used to identify a tab which has been opened by the extension. Thanks to that, we limit number of instances of Difree to one. We want Difree to open in one instance, no matter how many times you attempt to open it. We can offer better autosave logic. Furthermore, we don't know what tabs you open. ⯈ Permission justification - ContextMenus The extension offers creating a note directly from the visiting page through Context Menu. The note contains the URL and the title of the website. We need that, so you get the URL and title. ⯈ Do we use remote code? No, we don't use remote code ★ We need your feedback ★ How do you find Difree? What's good and what's missing? How can we help you more? Email us at [email protected] and tell us. ★ Changelog ★ More: https://www.getdifree.com/changelog/ ⭢ 0.5.3 – 2022-07-30 # Changed Minor changes in feedback mechanism ⭢ 0.5.2 – 2022-07-23 # Changed 1.

We prefer the approach 'your data is none of our business'. Our privacy policy is pretty strict about it, the privacy of your data — and it is your data, not ours! — is a big deal to us.

  • (2022-01-21) Niranjan Sathyamurthy: Hey Aleksander, Thank you for a very cool QoL text editor! Seconding the need for a dark mode! Also some other questions I've got in no particular order: 1. Does the editor copy text with markdown? Because when I tried to copy a reddit comment that I spent some time typing and then tried to paste into reddit, it didn't preserve any of the formatting. I'm using old Reddit if that helps. 2. Are there plans to add saving/drafts feature? Sometimes, I write stuff initially, but have to save for latter to either add citations/links or would have to do some research and I'd like the ability to be able to save stuff on there that I could come back to later. 3. I see buttons for adding links/images on the Difree interface screenshots on the website, but in my actual editor those buttons are absent. I checked to see if there were some options I needed to enable, but there's no options menu either. Am I doing something wrong? Or are those features not present in the current version? Thank you for an awesome extension and I hope you continue to make this even better!
