Always use Readability on selected domains

This extension simply adds a context menu to enable/disable Readability ( for the current domain on a permanent basis. It's designed to work with the Readability Redux extension (, but will also work without it (just a bit slower). 0.10 - Added support for wildcards in domain matching - Fixed the context menu 0.9 - Added some help for defining patterns. - Fixed confirm dialog when leaving options page after making changes. 0.8 - Fixes the back button and reload button so that you can cancel readability. - Separate the domain name from the pattern to make it work more consistently - Detects presence of Readability Redux correctly. Note: This version will attempt to update your previously defined patterns although I can't guarantee this will work 100%. 0.7 - Improved options page (more consistent with chromium's preferences page) using Nimi Cleanser ( as inspiration. 0.6 - Fixed bug (Thanks Ahmed) where the wrong tab got rendered by Readability. 0.5 - Removed broken logging 0.4 - Fixed a bug where the extension fails first time. 0.3 - Now has an options page where you can manually add, remove and edit the patterns that enable Readabiity. - Default pattern added/removed from the context menu now matches subpages of the url, no longer the domain name on it's own.
