If youo want one browser extention to handle your news, this is it! I read ALOT and the extention helps me prioritize what I am reading so I don't end up caught in other people's fantacies...

An amazing tool for understanding the news behind the news and most of all, a healthy way of understanding any media content, by the narrow or wide angle, the freedom of expression may or can take.

I would Like to see web version for windows of your app in dark mode, these are just low hanging fruits. Other than that - love your app!

Hope it can show scores of news resources like allsides. And can we see the basis for classifying these news resources?

Hi Huahsin, thanks for your review and feedback. You might be happy to know that we do offer bias and factuality ratings for the news sources, and one of the organizations that we get that data from is All Sides. You can read more about our methodology, including how the sources are classified, here: https://ground.news/rating-system I hope this answers your questions, but please feel free to reach out to feedback@ground.news if you have any other questions or feedback, we'd be happy to help!

Hi Adolfo, thanks for reaching out and I'm sorry to hear about this issue. Can you share more information about what you're seeing? Does the extension load at all on any other sites, or are you noticing it on Facebook? If you could share more details and a screenshot with our team at feedback@ground.news we can investigate the issue further. We look forward to learning more so we can resolve this for you as soon as possible!

It WAS fine until, and best I can tell, Chrome 115. Now it fast flickers at the top of the web page. I removed then reinstalled the extension but the issue was still there.

Generally an amazing plugin, love the idea of checking political "alignment" of a website on the fly (factuality would be good to include too btw). But so often the plugin doesn't "activate" and show what it is supposed to, while it activates on sites like Youtube or tech stuff for no reason, just to say that (of course) it doesn't have political information about it. This needs fixing, otherwise an amazing idea.

Hi Stefan, thanks for sharing this review and feedback! We're glad to hear that you're enjoying checking the political alignment of different sites online. We've recently introduced Factuality to the bias checker as well – you can find it by tapping the "G" icon in your toolbar when you are viewing a webpage. You might be glad to hear we are developing a whitelist/blacklist function for our extension users, so you can have more control of what sites it does and doesn't appear on. In the meantime, could you share more information about what sites the extension isn't activated on? We look forward to enhancing your experience!

I don't know what happened with the ground news bar but it mess so much with existing website designs it makes many websites unusable. I have no other choices but to uninstall it until this extension or chrome is fixed.

Hi Eric, we're sorry to hear about this issue. This definitely shouldn't be affecting different website layouts. Sometimes there might be another extension that you are running that might interfere poorly with the bias checker extension and cause issues as a result. Can you share more information about what sites it is affecting and what this issue looks like? You can share screenshots with our team at feedback@ground.news . We look forward to learning more so we can resolve this for you as soon as possble!

cmon why the heck would ground news try to fact check friggin steam store??? and how long before you implement a blacklist/whitelist function??? it's terrible that such a potentially useful extension has such a debilitating self-sabotaging impairment, which should be quite easy to fix since so many good extensions already have include/exclude functions. 1-star because this has been a problem since day 1 and i've suffered thru it for MONTHS now. fix it yesterday.
