It does what is says removing clutter and ads to get read the text. The background can be changed from white to sepia, gray, and black night. An issue I have is you can't change the text font or more importantly the size of the font. For those with vision issues this is a big issue. I confused this one app with another with the same rocket ship logo and function that does have these features and was trying to install it on a new machine. So, it was just okay but could be much better.

Has a critical flaw: it breaks some websites, even if you're not actively using it. (And therefore it shouldn't be active and impact anything. Just having it installed already changes websites.) Otherwise: great concept and seems to work.

Apologies for the flaw. You are right. It was due to CSS scoping. I fixed the issue in 0.0.0.6. Thank you for trying it out.
