Why was Column Reader created?
I read a lot online and was annoyed with the length of the lines, the black-on-white color schemes and the large amounts of advertisements on many web sites. I thought that I could improve on the web readers available for Firefox at the end of 2010. Column Reader comes with several different layouts, color filters, document miniature view and domain-specific settings.
What's next for Column Reader
I'd like to add the following improvements:
> Text zoom independent of the underlying page/OS zoom.
> Automatic opening of reader when target element matches.
> Option to set absolute column width, independent of page width.
> Options for content selection using element location, id and/or class.
> Improved approach for pages with nested tables.
> Improved estimate of page background color.
> The ability to open multiple links on a page in one document.
