Genialne rozszerzenie Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Jest to najlepsze rozszerzenie w swojej kategorii (readability).
Wielkim plusem tego rozszerzenia jest możliwość wyboru własnej czcionki (dla języka polskiego polecam czcionkę Apolonia).
Gdyby nie ono, to pewnie bym używał czegoś innego niż FF.

Others promise, Tranquility does. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I came over here to write this review after the three zillionth time Tranquility un-crappified a page for me perfectly, simply, and instantly. After years of trying various Readabilities and Read It Laters and other false promisers, I finally have the add-on that actually does what they promise to do.

o melhor leitor de textos Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Minha único apontamento por não ter dado cinco estrelas, é que poderia ter para chrome também.

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does perfectly and neatly what it is supposed to do. Also,I appreciate the compatibility with NoScript.

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent. Works perfectly. Just an idea: Please add sepia / night /day color schemes ready to select. It is not easy to find correct RGB codes. Thank you!

great tool but having some minor trouble Rated 5 out of 5 stars

the background colours could be more customizable, as well as font size. also, there should be some sort of apply button in the preferrences, not making the prefs window disappear. im not shure if i will find the optimal settings without a change in that, working on an 21.9 screen. besides thanx for this.

It's TidyRead resurrection Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It is as fast as TidyRead because it doesn't load the readable version from somewhere else like Readability and others, it generates it like TidyRead.

Need odd digit font size Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This would have been perfect if it had the ability to change to odd digit font-size like 13px.

(Oops - if you saw my first comment about it cutting off text on the sides, ignore it, that was actually a problem from Firefox's built-in reader that I clicked on mistake)

On Wiktionary, it hides the collapsable grammar charts so I get the article text but not the charts. Example page:

Thanks for the feedback...

The addon works best for pages with a lot of text (articles); in fact I aggressively cull as much of the javascript and custom css that I possibly can while processing a page.

Pages like Wiktionary which are quite sparse in the volume of text are don't have annoying advertisments, images, menus etc. are not the focus of this addon.

There are two features that set this plugin apart from the many others that provide improved readability:
- it seems particularly effective at determining what is the content that should be displayed, some other plugins miss some or all of the relevant content; and
- whatever Tranquility Reader displays can be saved as HTML, without the sidebars, ads, etc. The other plugins cannot do this.

A great and functional add-on to read easily Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Ok, since I test many 'read-easily' add-on, this is the best one:
- it seems to use a little RAM,
- it is as configurable as I like
- it works perfectly!

BUT it misses something that is really important: I have many pages recorded with custom zoom level. And when I press the shortcut to read with Tranquility, it displays text not at the font size I chose in tranquility settings, but at the level of the customed zoom level I put for the page... That's really bad, I'd rather read any tranquility-webpage at the same font size, whatever is the zoom level I set for the original webpage.

Thanks a lot whatever :)

Thanks for the feedback...

Dear Yoannjap,

Thank you for the feedback. I have added a fix to the zoom issue that you mentioned in the beta channel. I will submit this for review after some more testing. After this fix, Tranquility font size will override the custom zoom level of the original page. But toggling back from the Tranquility view to the original page will restore the page specific zoom level.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

nicest readability extension. would be nice if it would also provide integration with services like readability and instapaper.

Thanks for the feedback...

Dear Mihai,

The absence of an online account that stores your reading list is a privacy feature that some like.

In addition, such integration will become redundant when readability and instapaper make changes to improve their handling of any pages that Tranquility processes better at this time.

Due to the above reasons, there are no plans to add such features to Tranquility.

Best in class, in fact I use it so much that I came by to chip in $5 or $10, but the developer hasn't set up contributions. Arunk, got a favorite charity? (:O) Tranquility rocks!

Hi dwboston. Thank you for the feedback.

I have no plans to request contributions for this addon. You can contribute any amount you find appropriate to any charity of your choice.

This seems to be the only readability extension that actually cuts off the unwanted elements from web pages as opposed to just hiding them. I can finally save only what I want to scrapbook without twenty clicks. Thank you and please keep up the good work.

I've been using this app for around a year, maybe more, and I love it for how simple and easy to use it is.

Haven't had any complaints at all until the latest update- the links menu has been moved from the side to the top in a thick frame, so when you read it intrudes into the article's space. And if you're reading fast and hitting page down it's too easy to start reading the menu text instead of the article when your eyes flick back up to the top. When it was on the side it was much less intrusive.

Dear LegMeat,

Edit (update)
The menu is automatically minimized in the beta channel now.
There is a (+) symbol that can be used to display the menu again.

The fix is included in version 1.1.7, which is now reviewed and available for download.

Thank you for the feedback. I too experienced this problem when I switched the "menu" text to the top. I suspect that I was not as inconvenienced because I use the scroll wheel or the down arrow a lot more than the "Page Down" button. Some history:

When I first added the "More Links" item, it was a single menu item, and putting it on the side seemed the cleanest thing to do. Then, I added "Read Later" to save for offline reading and "Offline Links" to retrieve the links saved offline. Suddenly, I had three items that had menu text rotated 90 deg, and spaced out along the height of the screen. When I got to 1.1.6, and I wanted to add the ability to add annotations and then collate all annotations into a single view, I need to add another menu item "View Notes". Putting all these on the side suddenly seemed problematic and after some experimentation, I moved everything to the top.

Changing the interface / look and feel of a tool meant to make reading more enjoyable is always a problem. People get used to something and when it changes without notice, its almost always unpleasant. It was a difficult decision to make, knowing this would cause disruption.

In the next version, (1.1.7) I will attempt to "auto hide" this top menu after a few seconds of loading (unless the mouse pointer is placed back in that area -- or through an explicit user action on a "display menu" button). If I can get this implemented correctly, that should improve the reading experience. It will take me a few days to make the changes, but the time spent in the queue waiting for an official review from Mozilla is quite long these days.

If you don't mind, please install the "Development Version" (beta channel). This code is not reviewed by Mozilla, but you can see code changes as soon as they are available and influence the final released version.

If you have an idea different from the "auto hide" approach, please do give your feedback. While I cannot promise to implement your suggestion, I will definitely give it serious consideration.

Thanks again for your feedback.

Better then Reader 4.7. It might be popular than Reader if it has a better name.

Excellent addon. It makes website readable (similar to Readability, Instapaper Preview and others) and works very well together with NoScript.

One suggestion: Please make it possible to remove the border around the text - I find it very distracting.

Thank you for the feedback

Dear onto3423,

Thanks you for the feedback. Your suggestion is great; I tried it out and found my own reading experience was better. I will incorporate this as an option in the next version (bundled with other planned changes -- so it might take a little time).

Update: A beta channel version (nightly build/development version) is available at:

The user unfriendly border is removed. In addition, you can add/edit annotations to offline links. Please bear in mind that this is a development channel and the code is not reviewed by Mozilla volunteers. So, there is a greater chance of bugs.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon is exactly what I was looking for. Really appreciate the NoScript compatibility. Thank you so much!

Suggestion for future version: the ability to permanently enable Tranquil Browsing for all websites. Or maybe a function that lets you keep a list of sites where Tranquility is automatically enabled by default?
