  • (2023-03-08) João Luiz Carretas: Apesar de ainda apresentar publicidades textuais e não fornecer tantos recursos, entendo ser ainda o melhor deste gênero, pois NÃO corrompe o texto a ser lido e NÃO suprime dados importantes.
  • (2023-01-02) wolfgang lawrence: problem, extension causes chroma problem aka kills chroma in chrome browser for most of 2022. had to turn them off one at a time to pinpoint the violating extension. i'm logging this to help coders figure out why and fix in an update. changed the "Allow this extension to read and change all your data on websites you visit" setting from 'all sites' default to 'on click' to fix the problem, but now have to ask how i get your ext to do it's thing.
  • (2022-10-05) C. L.: Thank you Omarrrr! My man! Now I don't have to figure out where the "x" button is on an annoying ad and am not distracted with those attention whoring ads. Plus, it is so easy to read text now! Amazing!
  • (2022-08-23) Stacia Kissick Jones: Currently using Version 104.0.5112.102 (Official Build) (64-bit) and this did not work at all. Made photos black and white, but they were still there.
  • (2021-08-25) MainSpot Dark: 隱藏圖片速度快,還能選擇替代的圖片,一鍵切換十分方便.
  • (2021-04-10) john doe: This is a joke right? according to dev tools, data transferred over network is higher when applying this extension or the difference is tiny, I tried it on several pages including Facebook and tested in incognito mode and repeated the test several times with each mode, for saving bandwidth this tool is waste of bandwidth.
  • (2021-01-11) Bakary N'tji Diallo: Any keyboard shortcut to switch between modes? Is it possible to define a list of websites as extensions? Also, it blocks Mendeley Extension!
  • (2021-01-07) Cool Player: Lol the image replacement was an illusion (MY EYES!!!!!!!). Try looking at it for a minute or two.
  • (2020-11-28) Omer Say: Harika. Elinize sağlık.
  • (2020-09-24) 野上雄一朗: 文章のみに集中したい場合に重宝しています。 ハイコントラスト等の配色反転機能と組み合わせて利用しています。
  • (2020-06-23) xu hua: 目前试过无图模式都是在复制文本时会继续显示图片,希望找到是一款去除网页图片,保持文字格式可以复制文本到Word的插件,这款+简悦两个插件一起合用勉强可以达到我想要的形式吧,,
  • (2020-01-28) Melissa Farthing: Lets me study on SparkNotes without having to run into annoying distractions. Thank you!
  • (2019-09-21) Vikaash Mahabir: Ok, the good news is that all those annoying moving ad type images are grey. Much easier on the eyes. The bad news is that apparantly those moving images are somehow still active on the background. This means that precious battery is wasted because of CPU cycles eaten by the darned website!
  • (2019-08-21) Richard GM (RG80211): Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Now Works within Tabs! Let's Hope that Browser Manufactures do not get too consumed by their $treams and take it away! As you may know, many changes are coming to your phones and browsers!
  • (2019-07-30) User 57: То что надо.
  • (2019-07-07) Bình Trịnh Xuân: Super good for someone with lowlevel-computer and lowlevel-internet like me
  • (2019-05-15) mel2k: I really like that it maintains the page formatting. However, I'd like the ability to display blocked items on demand.
  • (2019-03-21) Gean Santos: Adiciona propagandas nos sites que você visita.
  • (2019-02-07) Novbert: Awesome
  • (2018-12-11) Teddy Chen: Works like a charm!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • (2018-11-20) Apolo R.: Work Like a charm , HTML5 ADS an video still working after the extension has been applied

  • (2018-10-15) 书痕: 正是我想要的,在需要的网页里采用无图模式
  • (2018-10-11) Max P: still loads video in b&w mode(youtube) delete it
  • (2018-08-08) Explore Na: Hi Is this project open source? It gives us confidence to use extension if they are open source.
  • (2018-07-05) mateus mendes: Have it turn on/off per tab and it will be perfect. Usually I browse pretty light but want to toggle images off in a specifically hectic site, while I still want to see the images in the other one.
  • (2018-04-20) Duc Trinh: Would be nice to be able to whitelist certain sites
  • (2018-03-09) Kenneth Kulathilake: Does not work in 2017
  • (2018-02-05) amsimkiss: doesn't work
  • (2018-02-05) Jonas Heß: Great extension. I use it for a more relaxed reading experience. In the future, I would love to see more customization options, like font color, image transparency.
  • (2018-01-13) Sumeet Srivastava: This works really well-- there are some sites that dont work, but by in large it does a great job. Some feature enhancements needed: * Selectively go into text mode by tab * Ability to hover or click on blocked image to see what image is being shown if you are curious * Remove image placeholders entirely (though this might leave page rendering difficult) Overall just what I needed!
  • (2017-11-22) Jonathan LaRocque: Devs...this is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you for making this addon available. Keep up the great work.
  • (2017-11-17) Barbazzo Fernap: This is a misnomer. It doesn't actually do what the name suggests. Note: Chrome needs an alternative to Textise!
  • (2017-10-25) John Akridge: Just did not work in Chrome 61. Images and videos still present.
  • (2017-10-20) Matej Kralik: Good extension which save my data when I use mobile connecion on the travel.
  • (2017-10-11) Dipankar Debnath: good way

    Hey there, I absolutely love this extension :) Thanks for working on it. I would love to be able whitelist specific websites. Anyway thanks again.
  • (2020-04-02, v:0.5.0) Mallikarjun 99: HOW DOES THIS WORK ?
    Does this extension stops the images from loading or it replaces with a white box and still loads the image in the background.. Is it meant to save data by not loading images and colors
  • (2019-12-17, v:0.5.0) Андрей Б.: Не работает
    Страницы перезагрузил, ничего не изменилось. Версия Google Chrome 49.0.2623.112.
  • (2019-11-11, v:0.5.0) dues zub: i love it
    wonderful plugin
  • (2018-07-08, v:0.5.0) Explore Na: Open Source?

  • (2018-03-05, v:0.5.0) Paul-luuk Profijt: Font
    It would be really great if I could also automatically replace the font of any website to be a plain, easy to read font.
  • (2018-01-22, v:0.5.0) Ray Linville: Javascript errors
    This extension was causing constant javascript errors on a site I use for work, even though I never clicked the button to use Text Mode on that site. Had to disable it since even at rest it's crippling my productivity. Sorry.
  • (2017-12-06, v:0.5.0) S Ira Grossman: Blocks Images when enabled
    Through a process of elimination I determined that when this extension is enabled in Chrome images are greyed out.
  • (2017-11-21, v:0.5.0) 왜 설치했는데 앱에없음??
    제가이어플 쓸려고 설치를했는데 설치완료 추가됨 써저있는데 앱에없어요???/
  • (2017-09-24, v:0.5.0) saeed serpooshan: don't reload page when change text mode on/off
    it is not required to reload the page automatically when user changes text-mode on or off. He could do it if he want with chrome reload (F5) button. this cause unnecessary loads... thanks
  • (2017-05-24, v:0.5.0) Jerry Chin: will this extension make page loading fast?
    Dear developer, I want to know whether this extension is going to make any noticeable change over the speed of page-loading or not? thanks.
  • (2017-05-17, v:0.5.0) Roman Levin: B&W inversion
    Try to make the b&w inversion option: the background is black, the text is white. Good luck!
  • (2017-03-01, v:0.5.0) Thomas Scott: Whitelist/Exceptions
    I love love love text mode. What would make it even more useful for me would be a way to set certain sites/hosts as always text mode, and others as never. I use this to quickly scan articles, and it's fantastic for that, but then I hop back over to an app and i have to turn it off and refresh in order to get it working again (especially at work).
