Makes text on pages more readable
Read-Ify is a free chrome extension that makes web pages more readable without the need to zoom in or hide elements. Read-Ify works by increasing text size, fixing text fonts, sharpening images, and adding character and line spacing where needed. Read-Ify gets rid of those pesky distracting link colors and decorations and gives paragraphs more contrast for readability. Read-Ify does not destroy your browsing experience as you can choose when to activate it with the click of a button. To activate, simply click the 'E' icon that sits in the top right extension tray on chrome. To remove the effect, refresh the current page or visit a new page.

Great potential but in an effort to make a site more readable, the font is changed and in some circumstances, not for the better. It would be great if user could have a choice of font or if extension could change size and perhaps contrast, but have a separate option as to whether to change the font and if so, a small choice of possible fonts. In my case, nytimes.com in latest version of Chrome changes default font to something that prints like a monospace font which is light.
