Latest reviews (2019-11-04) Dante Murua: It's cool, but doesn't work for new theme. I would be more than happy to see it working on the redesign. Hope you can work it out! (2019-10-30) Mike Massari: Does not work with the new reddit layout. Would be great otherwise (2019-05-06) Alex Rudinski: Works great, excellent for long content like r/AskHistorians or r/WritingPrompts! (2019-01-03) SantiagoMG: It's beautiful but IT DOESN'T WORK FOR THE NEW THEME! :( (2018-07-21) Psyda: https://i.imgur.com/WUDswoD.png Something is wrong. Causes comments to lag out of every subreddit for 5+ seconds. (2018-06-18) Tin Paudenović: I used it extensively in the past though now that New reddit is upon us I fear it has lost functionality. (2018-04-04) AJ Hsu: The extension makes reddit comments unbelievably readable and beautiful. Thanks for the awesome work! (2018-04-01) Leighton Vuong: Great extension, my only gripe with it is that I wish that the read button would be at the top of a post instead of at the bottom (like comments). EDIT: Still no bueno, can't seem to find the read button above posts (2017-12-28) Niten Brah: This extension is genius!!! Thank you so much!! (2017-09-03) Mark Arambula: Very useful extension for Reddit. Thanks for creating this. (2017-07-23) Velnias Velis: Excellent tool. Thank you for this.

(2015-05-28) D.B. Sowell: I already use RES, but this makes reading the longer comments a lot easier. Don't so easily get distracted. (2015-04-14) Hà An Phạm: Absolutely beautiful. (2015-03-15) Stephy Miehle: Much better reading experience! (2015-02-16) Daniele Trapani: Fantastica estensione per leggere i commenti in un sito altrimenti illeggibile. La migliore funzione secondo me è la stima dei minuti che servono per leggere il post. 10/10 (2015-02-04) Marc Grädtke: Great enhancement!
