                *****BETA/PRE BETA*****

Read articles FAST!

grokfaster is a chrome extension designed to help you read the content of pages and articles a lot faster. This speed-reading technique has been known for a while and is now gaining popularity. Even if you've never used it before you might fine you can read at 500+ WPM

Please keep in mind this is an EARLY BETA, and I would love feedback. If there's any problems, chances are in the coming days it will be addressed, if not, let me know! Thanks!

Current Features (v 0.1.2):
 - Right click menu to read highlighted text
 - Space bar for pause
 - Escape or click background to stop reading
 - Option for WPM (words per minute)
 - Option for focal point
 - Option to show previous and next words
 - Options for delay after sentence and other items (comma etc)
 - Option to dim the background

Coming features:
 - Customize everything (color, font, size)
 - Read pasted text
 - Read other items
 - Scan back words when paused (for better comprehension)

Overall I want this to be a very usable, good looking and stable app.

It's still early, and each minor revision has improved it greatly.
