Seems helpful - Doesn't seem to work on PDFs within Google Drive, though? At least so far I haven't been able to get it to work...

Pretty great. So easy now to view citations! But it breaks Copilot's ability to read PDFs in Edge. :(

Really useful. Only 4* because it doesn't capture *every* link / reference, and sometimes erroneously highlights non-name words. But it does a pretty good job and makes reading academic PDFs a lot better.

I though it can be a different PDF reader, such as AI-based, but it is just a normal PDF reader? Please add AI function, for example powered by Google AI-agent like gemini. Thank you.

Very useful! Love the reference preview feature and the night mode! I would love to have two more features: - annotation - two-page view Thanks for your work!

Overall quite useful extension, but there is a bug. For some PDF documents it changes the font and the structure of the text, there are random spaces between letters. When I disable the extension, all these issues are gone, so it is not the issue of the document, but of the extension.

Almost perfect, but really should be able to highlight & annotate if it's to be considered useful
