  • (2020-09-25) Maddox McNew: After the use of this text started cutting off making it ruin the purpose of whats its supposed to do. Even attempts of uninstalling and installing this and reloading sites this did not help.
  • (2017-01-25) Raúl: no se actualiza desde 2013. No conserva muchas de las fotos que tienen los artículos.
  • (2016-11-19) John Sowash: One of the few alternatives to Readability (discontinued). I wish there was an option to adjust the number of columns / layout of the page.
  • (2016-05-07) Rick McCharles: Compared with Readability and other similar products this one is confusing and not actually much more readable.
  • (2013-11-07) Very nice way to read articles without the clutter of ads and sidebars. I imagine would be useful on tablets too where every inch counts.
  • (2013-04-05) Stanley Goertzen: Help. Where are [How to] instructions? When I click on the Purify icon nothing happens.
  • (2013-03-17) Алексей Владимиренко: Превосходное приложение. Всем буду рекомендовать. Просто обалденное. Больше ничего не нужно.

  • (2018-01-04, v:0.2) Atul Singh: Regarding Images off option in the articles
    Hi, Could you please add image off/on option in this extension. Otherwise, it is very good extension and I really love it.
  • (2016-11-19, v:0.2) John R. Sowash: Perfect for Schools
    Hi Andreas! Readability, an extension similar to Purify, has been discontinued. This was a very popular extension for K-12 schools. I think you could pick up a significant user base if you made a few changes to Purify and start marketing it to schools. Happy to help if you are interested! Hit me up on Google+ or Twitter (@jrsowash).
  • (2016-04-25, v:0.2) Ashish Bijalwan: Need keyboard shortcut
    Hi Purify is great for its intended purpose. Could you just add the option of keyboard shortcut for starting and closing Purify for any webpage. This would make it very useful.
  • (2015-06-02, v:0.2) Rodrigo Prates: Still working on it?
    Hi mate, do you still working on it? I would like to use your engine to build something, but it doesn't seem to be working.
