Description from store UPDATE: You can now set the Dashboard to show only once a day, instead of with every new tab. Just click the settings (gear) icon in the upper right corner of the Dashboard and flip the toggle for display frequency. You can always access the Dashboard by clicking on the browser extension icon in the upper right. --- Read Across The Aisle gives you a visual representation of your filter bubble. Our dashboard shows you your most-read news websites so you can see where you're spending the most time reading. With the view options, you can see just the last 24 hours, week, or even your indefinite history, so you can track your behavior over time. Get Free Wall Street Journal Access! Click the WSJ link (below your most-read site list) to get a free, renewable, guest pass to the Wall Street Journal. Every week you will see the registration prompt again, but you can use the same email address to register each time. Social Network Tracking Social networks like Facebook and Twitter are tracked separately, so the color assigned to these sites is based on the partisanship ratings of the links you click on while on social media. So if you click on lots of liberal news from Facebook, then Facebook will show up bright blue. If you click on a mix of news from Facebook, it will show up as purple. The idea is that you can see (1) how much time you spend on social media; and (2) how the news you are exposed to on FB differs from the news you find organically. We look forward to adding new features, such as customized article recommendations, the ability to display your Dashboard only once or twice per day, and badges to track your accomplishments. Let us know what new features you'd like to see most, and if you'd like to support this free tool, please consider donating via PayPal: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_donations&business=BMM59P2BFUC7A&lc=US&item_name=Read%20Across%20The%20Aisle&no_note=0&cn=Add%20special%20instructions%20to%20the%20seller:&no_shipping=2&currency_code=USD&bn=PP-DonationsBF:btn_donateCC_LG.gif:NonHosted Thanks!

  • (2021-02-19) Scott Neidich: From the description: "Click the WSJ link (below your most-read site list) to get a free, renewable, guest pass to the Wall Street Journal. Every week you will see the registration prompt again, but you can use the same email address to register each time. " This link has not worked in ~1 year, and the developers acknowledge it is no longer a feature they can offer. Why is this still advertised?
  • (2020-06-23) E M: WSJ reading does not work. 404 Page Not Found We can’t find the page you're looking for. If you typed the URL into your browser, check that you entered it correctly. If you reached this page via our site or search, please let us know by emailing [email protected]
  • (2020-04-04) Charles McPhate: Get an error when trying to sign up for the WSJ trial. Ditto with the iOS app. Uninstalled and will not be back.
  • (2020-03-26) J R: SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0
  • (2020-03-21) Tom Missue: When I SUBMIT , It response "SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0"
  • (2020-03-13) Robert Demopoulos: Good concept we will see
  • (2020-03-02) Dana: The WSJ thing just says "SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0" whenever I try and subscribe to it, very frustrating I tried making sure cookies were allowed, adblock was off, etc, I'm pretty upset about it.
  • (2020-01-06) Michael Schaffer: The free access to WSJ has been broken for over a year. I guess they don't intend to fix it.
  • (2019-12-29) Blake Stewart: Still ridden with errors in regards to WSJ.
  • (2019-12-10) Fab Sz: "SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0" It doesnt work
  • (2019-12-05) Eric Radcliffe: Don't waste your time. No free WSJ.
  • (2019-11-21) Boris Joffe: I get the same JSON SyntaxError as mentioned in other reviews when trying to sign up for the WSJ 7-day pass
  • (2019-11-14) Rob Co: Didn't work. When submitting my email for the 7 day guest pass, all I got was: SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0
  • (2019-10-13) Eduardo Sampaio: it doesn't work... don't waste your time, as I did... :(
  • (2019-08-21) Justin Chow: The WSJ access has stopped working as of July 2019. I am getting the same error as other users: SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0
  • (2019-08-10) Adam McMurry: WSJ link does not work. "SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0"
  • (2019-08-07) Abhay Jajoo: 7 day subscriptions to WSJ is not working. Getting error message: "SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0"
  • (2019-08-07) Inas: Read Across The Aisle is an insightful additional feature to some extent. While I get some feedback, some sites that I consider news aren't acknowledged and recorded by RATA meaning my feedback isn't wholly reliable.
  • (2019-08-03) David M. Brown: The function enabling temporary subscriptions to WSJ is not working properly at the moment. I had no problem with it until yesterday. Now I am getting this error message: "SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0"
  • (2019-06-30) Jean Duboix: totally useless, it doesnt work at all
  • (2019-05-25) Brian Aerovalier: I am not sure why some users are not able to get the 7 days of WSJ access but it works for me. You'll be directed to a WSJ page that will prompt you to key in your email. I do have uBlock & Privacy Badger activated.
  • (2019-02-27) Ryan Garant: WSJ access works for me :) Didn't give it 5 stars because site is not https.
  • (2018-10-25) Saejong Lee: The WSJ promo does not work :(
  • (2018-10-15) Qwerty Uiop: It records when it wants to record and the WSJ promo doesnt work. And no I dont have any adblockers
  • (2018-10-10) Nathan Tracy: WSJ promo page does not work. I solved this once by disabling my adblocker but that does not seem to work this time. I went so far as to completely uninstall by adblocker, but that did not help. The WSJ header will load, but the rest of the page is blank and I continually get the: Confirm Form Resubmission "The page that you're looking for used information that you entered. Returning to that page might cause any action you took to be repeated. Do you want to continue?"
  • (2018-06-15) Tristan Mills: This extension provides a bad measure of what is considered news and what isn't. Most of the commonly read news sites—CNN, Washington Post, WSJ, New York Times—are pretty accurate, but social media sites (esp. Facebook and Twitter) skew my ratings even though I only use those sites for social media purposes, not to read news. Since the content on those sites can't be checked, social media shouldn't even have a rating. Also, sometimes I read articles on news sites that aren't news, instead just random stuff that I come across when I google something. There should be a better way to check the content users are actually reading to determine whether or not it's actually news.
  • (2018-05-03) Phillip Thomas: Advertising broken WSJ access is a little lame.
  • (2018-01-21) Greg Worrel: I found this Chrome extension while trying to read a wsj article. When I search for the specific article within RATA I still get the subscriber block. It is an older article and perhaps that is the problem. I have not yet evaluated this for other purposes.
  • (2017-11-23) Donny Meltabarger: Will not let me subscribe, only gives me a blank page.
  • (2017-11-09) Jose Chi: Worked on my computer and iPAD. But, does not work on the iphone, it does not allow me to enter the guest pass, only subscribe and sign in.
  • (2017-11-07) Nick Ball: It doesn't work for me. It hardly detects any of the websites I use.
  • (2017-10-31) Matt Bauwens: I provide this a neutral grade. This incarnates the notion of "who will guard the guards?" What is your actual metrics (or an example variable thereof) which actually measures bias - is it the way articles are written? Thus far, in my usage of this extension, is that there is essentially extreme left and extreme right, and that the mean, or center is CNN, which by these metrics, excludes libertarian sources, which by this exclusion, spotlights a serious blind-spot for this scale, and considerably nullifies objective content. If this blind-spot isn't fixed, this becomes nothing more than another influence tool, rather than a transparency one, especially, if your own methods of bias towards bias aren't held to a level of scrutiny and open iteration.
  • (2017-08-20) Victor Zheng: How does the 7 day guest pass thing work? Is it legal? Do you have a partnership with WSJ or did you find some sort of a loophole? Also, give an option to disable the home page screen.
  • (2017-08-14) Donald Tran: Please allow users the option to Not have this app become the default window when you open a new tab. This prevents me from using many of my other extensions. I pretty much work around this by disabling this extension the moment after I read an article after the filter bubble (which this app does nicely)
  • (2017-08-01) Daniel Turner-Lloveras: i ipened a new tab and clicked on renewable 7 day trial. Empty page. I'll update my score when fixed
