Latest reviews

  • (2021-06-04) Ben Wang: Looks like it doesn't work for dailymail anymore. (Not that I read it - just a good test case!). I'd like an extension that just puts together all the text on one page for me i.e. remove most of CSS. If someone could code this and get back to me or otherwise I'll have to try.
  • (2021-05-20) Nicholas Koldys: It currently cut out some content and does not display the whole document, it does not allow editing as the window is stuck at the top right and cant enlarge, and the premium ad displays constantly even when closed.
  • (2021-05-12) Sushil Katoch: I tried many reader to read novels online but this one is the best by far.
  • (2021-05-04) Continental Nobleman: ok
  • (2021-05-02) mohammad musharraf: very helpful app
  • (2021-04-24) Sagittarius: 註解按鈕不能隱藏
  • (2021-04-13) Prinz Sumabat: Great! Does the job.
  • (2021-03-12) Kie Mugen: 5 starts for beeing able to save "copyprotected" text, nice
  • (2021-02-22) Jack Lovell: This is great.
  • (2021-02-13) M B: Thankyou so much for it! Beautiful extension!!!
  • (2021-02-05) Alexander Astapov: It doesn't do more than the native reader mode in chrome. No point in using it for most people.
  • (2021-01-19) Ticha_ Junior: its just makes life easier
  • (2021-01-13) Laura Scanferla: Omg this extension is amazing! It quickly summarizes text and is super helpful for school and work alike. Would definitely recommend!
  • (2021-01-05) Roy Karny: Beautifully performed. Easy, fast and elegant.
  • (2020-12-27) Khalid Benjelloun: إضافة متميّزة.. أوصي بها طلّاب المعرفة وكل من يقرأ الكثير على الشبكة يوميا شكرا جزيلا
  • (2020-12-14) Edward Nordway: Иконки мешают, бегающая за мышкой приблуда раздражает, а чтобы редактировать шаблон - нужно знать CSS, что делает это расширением не для всех.
  • (2020-11-30) mOnaj K: Perfect, surprised by the simplicity and elegance of this tool.
  • (2020-11-29) John Wiens: I can't imagine reading articles without it. Blocks all the annoying pop-ups.
  • (2020-11-28) Betsy Wiens: Really helps to unclutter and keep me on task. I waste less time and energy on the things that don't matter! Thank you!!
  • (2020-11-28) Omer Say: Harika. Elinize sağlık.
  • (2020-11-27) Alex Trost: A fantastic plugin. So many great features and does a great job on every site I've tried it on.
  • (2020-11-27) Phoenix Gabriel: NO reason to require my email address, unless you want to sell it to spammers. That's a dealbreaker. There are other similar extensions that work just as well.
  • (2020-11-27) Alexander Garzon: Excelente ! y 100% personalizable. Update: from 5 to 1 star, the permission to read the email address doesn't fit with the task of this plugin. Very likely for spam purposes.
  • (2020-11-27) Martin Hünermund: Since last update it requires access to email address, which it should not need. This is a sign that this extension is in the process of being monetarized along with your data. It was a great extension (5 / 5), too bad, but I guess all things have an end. Bye bye
  • (2020-11-27) Александр Д.: Не разобрался сначала, поставил низкую оценку.. Сори, хороший ридер!
  • (2020-11-16) Muhammed Düzgün: Bayıldım
  • (2020-10-19) Leon Tang: 算是很好的插件,强制性启动阅读模式,这插件厉害,但理论上应该有小BUG,反正能用,可以用。
  • (2020-10-12) Anmol Sharma: It helps remove irritating ads and other waste pictures and videos.......It is very helpful in reading especially to student.
  • (2020-10-07) Goose Hjonk: it was nice, but you cant remove the promotion for just read premium, when you click "im not intrested, it does nothing.
  • (2020-09-02) Gongwei Chen: This thing is so good. I just registered for Fortune. But even after registering, it grey out the screen from time to time and adverisement here and there. This is after I paused by Ad Blocker. Life saver this thing. Try it. You will like it!

  • (2020-06-23) JUANHDA CX: Es sencillo, fácil de usar con un tema claro y una oscuro que se pueden personalizar (color de texto, fondo y hipervinculos) y no gasta muchos recursos a mi me gasta como 22mb de ram.
  • (2020-04-13) Amit Ranjitkar: This is an amazing extension. Hats off to developers !!
  • (2020-04-10) Dale Denham: Working again. Had stopped for awhile and I really missed it. So thankful for this extension especially as more and more sites fight the ad blockers. I don't mind a few well placed ads (businesses deserve to make money) but so many ads make things unreadable. Thank you JustRead!
  • (2020-04-10) Rajeev Agrawal: Works in very littel range of webpages. I have tried more than 10 such extensions and my favourite is Fika. You can alo try DOM.
  • (2020-04-04) Rebeca Gudiño: lit me salvó la life
  • (2020-03-31) Thomas Gillant: Absolutely indispensable
  • (2020-03-19) Marco Turina: fantastic!!
  • (2020-02-14) Jose RG: One of the must have extensions, really useful, following the "less is more" idea. Love it.
  • (2020-02-14) Abdullah Al jinaahi: اضافة مهمة جدا عند الترجمة من الانجليزية الى العربية تفيد في تعديل اتجاه النص المترجم من اليسار الى اليمين شكرا جزيلا لكم
  • (2020-02-09) Lyle Springer: I love Just Read. I like the fact that you can remove parts of the article, like if it tells you to check out another article, I can simply delete it. I love to print out the articles as a PDF to be able to read on Adobe Acrobat Reader offline. I'll also add the PDF to my Google Drive and share it. The only thing that I'd change are to include more features on the Premium because I feel like I can get everything in the Free Version. I will definitely continue to use Just Read!
  • (2020-01-27) Steven Wood: Been looking for a good "reader" extension, and I think I found. Thanks dev team!
  • (2020-01-19) Nikki C: Oh my gosh, I literally just got this extension and I'm already in love. I simplified an article with a bunch of annoying gifs, but useful advice I wanted to save, and was able to delete the gifs and anything else i didn't want! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
  • (2020-01-17) Jean Marlo: A simple tool, without many options and sometimes it hides the header. there are other interesting tools (like Reader View).
  • (2020-01-13) Henry Schober: great apple like reader mode, also with dark mode

Latest issues

  • (2021-05-12, v:5.1.3) We Are: Not working on this website (and similar ones)
    https://www.readlightnovel.org/ When activated on this website, it just removes the scroll bar, nothing else happens. Making it literally useless. This isn't the only website it happens to- it happens fairly often on novel websites and it's really disappointing.
  • (2021-04-17, v:5.1.3) Gary N: New account setup issue
    I was about to confirm my new account, when my computer had a issue that do not allow confirmation to go through. When I try logging in the ERROR Message reads -User Not Confirmed. Going to new account setup yields the ERROR Message - An account with the given email already exits. I see no way out, please help to get me out of this endless circle. Thanks Gary Nelson - [email protected]
  • (2021-03-02, v:5.1.2) Nora Hartquist: Problems with "new" extension
    I've used Just Read for a very long time, but hadn't accessed it recently. When I tried to, it gave me a page saying we now have to pay for Premium in a new program. I followed the instructions, but when I added it back, nothing would work, just kept going back to that page about the new program. So I went in, deleted the extensions, cancelled the card to be charged next year for Premium, then added it to Chrome again. Now the free version works, but I see no way to upgrade to premium?
  • (2021-02-17, v:5.1.2) Alex Kim: Great addon - one minor annoyance
    Is there a way to hide the button that automatically pops up anytime my mouse is around the "comment" area? It's a bit distracting and annoying, as I like to put my mouse in the clear area away from the text. BTW great job on the extension. I used this addon a few years back, but stopped using it due to many bugs and issues. Its much improved and working well now
  • (2021-01-04, v:5.1.0) Cameron Derksen: Auto-run not working
    I have installed JustRead and cannot get the auto-run feature to work. Despite selection the option to "Always add current site to Just Read's autorun list when Just Read is started on a page," domains are never added to the auto-run list. The right-click context menu does not add items to the list either. The only thing that seems to work is manually typing domains into the auto-run list. Is there a fix for this?
  • (2020-12-24, v:5.1.0) John Agger: Hide images
    Greetings Zach, A family member of mine has poor vision and is using the Mac to read out loud articles . Normally this works very well, but when there are images, it sometime gets screwed up and reads the caption and sometime the path to that image - mid article. Is there a way I can block images from loading with Just Read? Thank you, John
  • (2020-12-15, v:5.0.10) Просто Я: Download
    I can't download programm during all day. I see only " Download interrupted". Help me, please. Thanks
  • (2020-12-08, v:5.0.10) Khanh Nam: Formatting toolbar popup but unusable
    When I select text, a toolbar with Bold, Italic, Underline, Strikethrough, Color... popup, but nothing happens when I click on those buttons. I don't have Just Read Premium.

  • (2020-11-27, v:5.0.0) Rich G: Extension disabled as new permissions unexpectedly required
    With version 5.0.0, Chrome displays an orange "Error" message on the Menu button, which brings up this dialog box: > *Just Read is disabled* > To re-enable it, accept the new permissions: > • Read and change your data on justread.link > • Know your email address > {Accept permissions} {Remove} It is not obvious why these two permissions are required, as the extension is expected to be read-only on the local browser. The unusual error message may cause some users to leave the extension disabled or let it be removed instead rather than risk sharing personal information.
  • (2020-11-22, v:2.2.8) Joel Bruneski: Controls
    I am looking forward to using this app as I have some learning disabilities and this could make my schooling much faster. One problem. I cannot get it to run. It opens the selected text in the new window but I cannot get it to read from there. A little assistance please?
  • (2020-11-07, v:2.2.8) Eric Patterson: Privacy Policy
    I am curious about your privacy policies and how you store and use your customers data. I would like a little peace of mind about this issue prior to adding your product to my Chrome browser. The more details the better please. Answers that do not give all inclusive details will not be helpful to me and others. I would not be adverse to some data being sold to support your work, but I would need to know what data is being sold, and if the data was being sold in a completely anonymous fashion with no identifying information added. Thank You in advance for your time.
  • (2020-10-21, v:2.2.8) Ashley Hoang: Move the reading area to the left

  • (2020-07-15, v:2.2.7) Joseph Gonzalez: can't load japanese text
    perhaps encoding should be changed to allow for japanese text
  • (2020-07-08, v:2.2.7) Priscilla Jesslyn: Controls isn't working
    The control option for editing the theme suddenly stops working. The hovered controls that usually appear after I clicked the button to edit the themes have missed a few options, only leaving the option to change my theme to another theme. I could still edit it through the Java in the extension's options, but I need to to be careful, or else I would create an error. Is it a bug in the coding that caused the hovered controls act this way?
  • (2019-03-12, v:1.5.4) Bruce TM: Have you tried this on CNET?
    Maybe they have a devious programmer or something, but I get dummy content instead of the page.
  • (2019-03-04, v:1.5.3) Paulo Nogueira: Adding images to Just Read.
    Is it possible to add images to Just Read using CSS and if so has someone already written the code so that I can copy and past it in. Looked at the themes and tried a few but could not get images to show up. Happy with the default look just need images.

  • (2018-12-12, v:1.4.3) Laura Sagen: The permissions include "read all my data"...
    Hey, Looks like a worthwhile extension, but the permissions include "read and change all your website data" – I'm conscious of the privacy and also passwords – where can I read more on that in relation to your extension? Thanks!

  • (2018-10-30, v:1.2.9) Tim Brennik: Can't load URL...
    When I click on the extension, the page loads in a mess and I get the error message: Can't Load URL: The domain of this URL isn't included in the app's domains. To be able to load this URL, add all domains and subdomains of your app to the App Domains field in your app settings. I have no idea why I need to add all domains and subdomains to the app domains field?! And I have no idea how to do this... Please advise
