Hello, I noticed this tonight, and it really bugs me, especially on websites like with science articles where I am staring at the left side of my screen only to read the article, but in Firefox that same article, I hit the reading mode button at the top and boom it centers everything and makes it like a nice ebook look almost...

Just a very nice feature and I am curious as to why Chrome does not have this feature.

I know, I already looked at this, the Just Read one has an adblocker built in, but that means it can read all websites, including passwords I enter... I only trust Ublock Origin for that... wouldn't be surprised if these low review amounts... allow for nefarious activities in the background scripting... :/

Firefox its built in automatically, so I have no worries...

omg that worked perfect, and its built into Chrome so no addon risk... lol works great on SparkNotes, thanks man!!!!
ROFL Oh good grief!! That's the first thing I looked at, and I thought "Nah, that looks to messy, he wouldn't want that... wonder if there's an addon that does it better?"
