Strips away clutter like buttons, background images, and changes the page's text size, contrast and layout for better readability

Reader View extension removes clutter from web pages to enhance their readability. The extension uses Mozilla's Readability library as the engine to provide similar experience from what you get if you are on the Firefox browser. After installation, a button is added to your Chrome toolbar area or Opera's address bar. Pressing this button once opens the current page in the "Reader View" mode. You will notice the button's color will be changed to orange while you are in the reader view mode. Clicking on this orange button or pressing the back button of your browser closes the "Reader View" mode and restores the normal rendering mode. Since the extension uses history API, the page scroll position and the entire session is restored when "Reader View" mode is terminated. ★ Main Features of Reader View ✔ Open website directly in reader view ✔ Open website's links directly in the reader view ✔ Access the reader view button from a page action button ✔ Fullscreen reading ✔ Advertisement removing ✔ Save in HTML format ✔ Text to Speech (TTS) ✔ Move to the next and previous pages ✔ Keyboard shortcuts for almost all actions Try our software now. Its 100% free to use, and you can access the test results onto your hard drive or Google Drive.

Total rip-off of another extension all called "Reader View". That one is much better in all ways. And still free. Go get this one instead and you will see what I am talking about.

Useful and easy to use. Both the resize image buttons seem to be shrinking images, though, instead of the "+" button making it larger.
