Funky imagery/layout. A little slower than most similar types. This extension is not trusted by Enhanced Safe Browsing. No options. This reader blurbed things out unexpectedly ..with either an odd arc image, or just info deletion..and it didn't offer me things that I couldn't find elsewhere.
Great extension! Allows me to use a Greasemonkey script for auto-scrolling on keypress (link to script: https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/7658-auto-scroll-keys-adopted) for the TestOut website by successfully scrolling through the Read Mode page. Before this extension, the TestOut page did not allow this script to function.
Read Mode seems very clunky to me. First, the icon on a tool bar is almost invisible on the toolbar in dark mode. Seeing that it is made for people who have trouble with busy website layouts the extension generally throws a number of large monochrome icons up at the beginning of articles that aren't really useful for reading purposes. Then there are often extraneous bits of text before or beside the article. Also you can't adjust the size of text within the extension. The Safari built in reading mode is an example of what a reading mode should look like.
