Overview

speed read the internet, grok what you need to, faster.

*****BETA/PRE BETA***** Read articles FAST! grokfaster is a chrome extension designed to help you read the content of pages and articles a lot faster. This speed-reading technique has been known for a while and is now gaining popularity. Even if you've never used it before you might fine you can read at 500+ WPM Please keep in mind this is an EARLY BETA, and I would love feedback. If there's any problems, chances are in the coming days it will be addressed, if not, let me know! Thanks! Current Features (v 0.1.2): - Right click menu to read highlighted text - Space bar for pause - Escape or click background to stop reading - Option for WPM (words per minute) - Option for focal point - Option to show previous and next words - Options for delay after sentence and other items (comma etc) - Option to dim the background Coming features: - Customize everything (color, font, size) - Read pasted text - Read other items - Scan back words when paused (for better comprehension) Overall I want this to be a very usable, good looking and stable app. It's still early, and each minor revision has improved it greatly. Thanks!

Could be 5 stars if the next version would have: - support in Right-to-Left languages - dark mode (right now the whole background is darken, but the text background is still white) - option to press space bar to begin reading the selected text

Please add mention, that you don't use any of Spritz patent garbage, implementing your extension, based on basic RSVP and your own improvements. Because those patent trolls shut down everything they can touch.

Thanks :) You probably don't use it anymore, but I just realised I needed to update it to comply with the updated chrome store policy. If you do use grokfaster, would love to know how I can make it better!
