I really like this, even though it very rarely if ever gives a very detailed up to the minute unread article count, the only issue that really bugs me is...why are there so many articles without reading time tags? It's just very random, I thought it might've been with a particular site, or maybe articles are too short, but its very random, some sites sometimes dont have read time tags, somtimes they do, sometimes the articles are long, sometimes they're short, just random patches where a bun...

I really like this extension, it's a lot more customizable than official one , but there's one thing that prevents me from using it. The option to add time tags is enabled by default and it just overshadows all the good parts about it. Even after disabling it and clicking "remove all time tags" nothing happens. Every time I install it on new computer (and I use a lot of them) I have to go through the torment of deleting hundred tags manually on my mobile phone and it takes ages
