    Great work! This should be a built in feature on Chrome. Currently I just save to pocket and open it there when a site is unreadable.

      Not meaning to hijack this thread (Outline is great).

      But if you find a site unreadable, you can also try my side-project Email This. EmailThis removes ads and clutter from web pages and sends you a nice email with just the main text/images. I built it as a simpler alternative to bookmarking/read-later tools.

    It's like Reader View in Safari?

      Yes, and it works super instantly. May be chrome lacks this and the developer realised it's needed?

      Also reader in safari is good because, in mobile it makes sooo much sense

      And "Reader View" in Firefox as well.

    Does anyone know who's behind this thing?

    It's a cool idea as Chrome doesn't support this natively, for some reason. I tried it and ended up removing it because of the following:

    • No customisation option (background color, text font and size)
    • Adds social clutter at the bottom (which is a bit contradictory in my opinion)
    • The "x" takes you to a blank page instead of returning to the original page

    It was also a bit slow to render the content.

    Cheers!

      I think the advantage is that it's the only reader that produces a shareable URL. I've been using it like imgur for text.
