Overview

Make words colorful

The idea is to help induce synesthesia between words and colors, so that when you see a word you think about it in a particular color. Not only has this been proven to increase verbal memory but now just the visual of a word has a color connected to it. With reading as an essential daily function imagine making your day just a bit more colorful :) I also wrote a medium article on synesthesia and why I built this (https://medium.com/@ilianherzi/inducing-synesthesia-4ead16f37a1b). Couple of things about version 0.1.0 of the extension: 0. The current version is best used on webpages that don't update or change with a lot of text (so when reading). 1. For dynamic pages that update the color changes don't persist, so for example in gmail colored words go back to black and white. 2. On input text the color of the words don't change (so typing an email, writing a post, searching on google) These difficulties with the extension will be fixed in version 0.2.0!

I was excited but it doesn't work for me. The configuration menu doesn't pop up when I click on the extension options, and it doesn't change the color on any text for me. If this changes, I would be happy to change my review! I hope the developer has time to update soon :)

It's not working. Still five stars because I really like the idea of this

Whenever I pressed the button to color the words they came out very desaturated and far from their actual colors, very sepia-esque.
