  • (2023-08-29) Pat MySecret: This does a sort of click-and-choose filtering vs automatic full page of most Reader Viewers. That might have extra appeal to some people. Limited in options.. no image on/off
  • (2023-08-18) SiemprePalante77: I just installed it, and after clicking the extensions icon it instantly cleared up all the distractions on the site I was trying to read. Much appreciated. Thanks a mil. It'll become part of my essential extensions.
  • (2023-08-14) sampath kumar: This is the only app that I tried that gives me option to choose which div I want in reader mode. It very intuitive. I love this app. Thank you very much for building this
  • (2023-04-20) CatCitizen Citizen: works at times. good enough for now.
  • (2022-12-07) Danitza Rosas-Salvatierra: I clikced on the extension and selected what I wanted to listen, and it doesn't work. It doesn't read it.
  • (2022-11-12) santosh bharad: Everything is good, but useless as the file cannot be printed or save as pdf. Generally when any artilece is found usefull I wish it can be save on my pc for further reference. But your extention does not provide any option to save. If I tried to save by way of pring option then its setting is not as good as appearing on your extention site. Please provide such update.
  • (2022-08-28) Fateh Mammadli: Love it very much
  • (2022-05-08) Xiaobin Guo: Great extension to use if you want to concentrate on the main article and remove all other elements. It's so convenient and easy to use. Although, the configuration page is a little shabby.
  • (2022-01-28) tabliqat chi: I clicked on a section and it's turned into halves and half of the page is out of the popup window of this extension. Also another weakness IMO is that I'm very much used to the scrollbar on pages I read. Because I usually skip multiple parts of the articles I read and the scrollbars to the right of the pages are just easier to use than scrolling with the mouse.
  • (2021-12-29) sampath kumar: Awesome tool. Compared to other readers the feature I love the most is ability to select part of the page we need to be read
  • (2021-11-07) Тимур Миннигалиев: Отличное расширение. Не сразу понял как работает, но оказалось это удобнее чем я ожидал
  • (2021-07-14) Akhil Raj Kumar: Good Reading Experience
  • (2021-05-15) khaled nuur: Good: - Free (no ads/premium plan) Bad: - limited customizability + the defaults are not great - complex UX (not suited for long session reading)
  • (2021-04-30) Sergey Andriyuk: Пришлось немного "допилить напильником" (исправить отображение через Stylus - по другому моих знаний не хватило), после этого исчезли проблемы на некоторых сайтах (типа samlib.ru) Из всех аддонов, которые я видел - это лучший аддон. Он позволяет выбрать ту область, которую "читать," и позволяет удобно читать даже сайты, на которых другие читалки просто не показывают самое важное
  • (2021-03-19) Sergio Souza: Hello You could check. please, When you hover your mouse over a link, a pre-preview page on the link (the color of the link is ok) of a Wikipedia text goes down, the effect does not apply or appear, It would be wonderful for me! Thank you very much this app helps me a lot! (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khyal)
  • (2020-10-11) Hugo W: 比简悦等同类扩展都好用!希望作者继续更新!
  • (2019-11-03) minh dat: Thanks dev. Its perfect. I want "delete feature" to delete advertising logos on webpage.
  • (2019-09-26) Tom Pester: One of the better ones that preserves the content that I want. Thanks Anton!
  • (2019-05-17) Александр Огненский: - custom CSS styles - custom width - syntax highlighter Awesome! Thanks!)
  • (2019-03-23) Sobiya Naseer: Nice app!
  • (2019-03-11) Iails: 开启后,滚动条不能拖动了。
  • (2019-02-12) Melissa Goodsky: This is the best reader I've found. The only thing that I have discovered that doesn't work is the shortcut Cntrl+1 will not work for Chrome since that takes you back to the first tab. I was unable to set the shortcut to something else that would work. I do wish there was a little more documentation to make it easier to change the settings. I absolutely love that I can adjust the margins! Being able to change all of the other settings is also a huge plus. I struggled with changing the settings a bit until I realized you have to follow the format exactly as shown in the example. When changing the size of the font, you have to add px to the end or it won't take. Hope that helps someone!
  • (2019-01-24) Геннадий: Не работает сочетание клавиш, установленное в настройках
  • (2018-11-04) Long Nguyen Xuan (LongTTH): It works nicely but got a problem that can't change font size as in this screenshot, https://imgur.com/a/q4i6cKy I set the fontsize to 99 but it doesn't affect at all.
  • (2018-10-17) Julia Durrant: I really do love this app - the ability to remove extraneous pages and save as a PDF has been so beneficial. And the ability to choose which parts I want to see is also excellent. I am encountering one bug - when I click to print, it removes all of the bold and italics in the print preview and in the PDF generated.
  • (2018-09-29) CHCOOBOO: 可以自訂轉換範圍這點不錯,缺點是設定方式較不親民
  • (2018-09-10) Eduardo dos Santos Work: Please, add context menu and global keyboard shortcut options. I want to be able to show the new formatted article without moving the mouse to the toolbar, this is annoying and doesn't suit with the habits of highly productivity people, like myself. With these features, this add-on will be perfect. Many thanks.
  • (2018-08-29) Sean Ryan: Very useful extension for reading articles in clear text without all the sidebar distractions. *** Bug Report *** Page and arrow up/down buttons cause the underlying webpage to scroll, instead of the EasyReader overlay text. This behaviour occurs even if I first click on the EasyReader overlay text. As a result keyboard scrolling of the EasyReader page is impossible; only mouse scrolling is possible. *** Improvement Request *** Options Page: Provide a help facility for dummies like me who don't know CSS. What are the possible values for various fields? Either add to the text of the hover pop-ups or change the Sample Text page from Latin mumbo-jumbo :) to Help Text.
  • (2018-08-11) Arto Kalishian: Simple and Awesome! :)
  • (2018-08-09) Great extension. Would be nice to be able to edit more styles though. Especially the heading tags.
  • (2018-06-28) D.R. Y: Really good for reading, also recommend combine use with Diigo do highlight work and onenote. 非常好用,强烈推荐,同时也推荐和Diigo一起使用,高亮加阅读然后直接复制放到onenote上保存阅读,完美!
  • (2018-04-22) Mike: this is the best feature for extensive screen reader.
  • (2018-04-21) Сергей Галанов: Не знаю, как жить без подобных приложений. В противном случае - это просто уничтожение зрения
  • (2018-03-30) Ganesh: Awesome
  • (2018-03-18) laike9m: Love the syntax hilighting!
  • (2018-01-21) Michael Y: Very useful extension However, the recent update requires an additional step to click on the reader-page with the mouse. Else I can't navigate the page with the keyboard. Or is it only me? Thanks for the wonderful extension
  • (2018-01-19) Brett Kelly: Quietly keeps getting better, and it was already the best reader extension among several I've tried.
  • (2018-01-08) Yuri Bochkarev: I really couldn't find anything similar to this extension: selecting a block to focus on is a killer feature to me! Thank you! There is one inconvenience, though. When I'm reading an article with a source code, applied CSS style (fonts, colors, background) only makes it worse to me. Could you please add an option to turn off CSS style or add several options to let user choose what is applied? Basically often I just want to focus on some div element, make the font be bigger, and center the content and that's it. I don't need to change colors, just hide everything outside of the selected element. As an example, see: http://www.allprogrammingtutorials.com/tutorials/getting-started-with-rdds-in-spark.php EDIT: By the way, there is a typo in style.css: "font-weigth:bold" EDIT: Why is there in style.css the following link? // http://www.joelonsoftware.com/items/2006/08/01.html EDIT: I've managed to make it a little better disabling several lines in style.css. Here is the diff: https://gist.github.com/anonymous/17e8f801d72e2e7fa51768e54eed8ee2
  • (2017-12-27) Oleg Jash: Шикарно!
  • (2017-12-25) Alexander Teterkin: Excellent app! Please, add the parameter to set the width of the reading area. On my screen it is too narrow.
  • (2017-12-24) Great extension, really helps with readability, especially on academic websites with terrible layouts.
