Overview

Optimize any website for legibility and reading: clear spaced font, nice contrast, zen focus & night dark mode. Simple & lightweight

Minimal Reading Mode is a super lightweight extension that optimizes any website for reading: clear spaced font, nice contrast, zen focus & auto night dark mode. Font size, color, typography, margins, line-heights and spacings, all have been analyzed and tested for more than two years to find the best reading experience on your screen, activating the latest typography rendering technology to smooth fonts and optimize legibility. Minimal Reading Mode keeps getting updated with tweaks and optimizations as new technology becomes available. ✪✪ FEATURES ✪✪ ✪ Night Dark Modes There's 3 Dark Mode themes available, featuring a black background design and eliminating blue colors to avoid eye strain and improve your sleep. You can switch amongst all the different themes. ✪ Image and media minification Images and other media found on the article are resized to a tiny square so it doesn't distract you from reading. To see the image/media at full size, simply move your cursor over it. This feature also becomes a great SFW (Safe For Work) solution when reading articles with dubious content. ✪ Custom settings Tweak your reading experience to your specific liking by choosing paragraph width, font size, font and background colors, font typography, line height, letter spacing and more. Settings are saved between sessions. ✪ Automatic Scroll to content ReadingMode will detect where the article starts and autoscroll to its title. ✪ Works on all websites Not just blog articles, any website can be enhanced for legibility. ✪ Super lightweight, CPU friendly ReadingMode is the lightest readability/legibility Chrome extension at less than 19KB, passive loading and no memory hogging. ✪ Automatic Clean-up Removes parts of the website that are repetitive and not interesting so that you don't lose focus, including Ads. ✪✪ HOW IT WORKS ✪✪ While on any website, click the red icon of a book on the status bar and the website will be automatically optimized for reading. You don't need to setup anything else although moving your mouse at the top right of the page a few buttons will appear to tweak font size, width, theme and full screen mode. To revert back to the original website simply refresh the page. ✪✪ FREE & OPEN SOURCE ✪✪ Minimal Reading Mode is open-source and also available as a bookmarklet here: https://gist.github.com/luckyshot/8a28768ae0f7035146946272563d8863
