why? Rated 2 out of 5 stars
why does an addon intended to improve readability obscure a part of the radabilized text with "More LInks"? Could you move that to the toolbar icon or something?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
Thank you for the feedback...
In the next version, the maximum width of the readable area will be restricted to 90%. That way, the "More Links" tab will not overlap any text (currently, if the width is set to 100%, it can obscure some of the text).
The only one that appears to work Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I;ve tried Clearly, readbale (just crashes firefox) and readbility. None of them worked correctly or at all on many cases (e.g. on sevenforums). This is the first that works correctly and reformats the page.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
Adware Rated 2 out of 5 stars
...that (stupid enough) places a floating fixed DIV on every page, killing scroll performance on older PC's.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
Thank you for the feedback
There is no advertising through the addon. It runs locally on your browser and does not connect to any webpage other than the one you visit (except for the dictionary and wikipedia functionality which is only triggered by a user action). It is possible that the website you visited had ads. and the addon was unable to remove all or many of them. Since the addon is compatible with NoScript and AdblockPlus, please try to use it along with those addons and that should help cut down the ads. you are seeing.
Regarding the performance problem, would you please provide the specs. of your computer:
(1) OS and version
(2) Processor speed and manufacturer
(3) Amount of RAM
(4) Firefox version
if I can find a similar hardware, I will test on it and see if I can reproduce the performance problem.
wow Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've tried two other readability addons, and all three have there strengths. But I have to say, this one is my favorite. It's much faster than the others and is also customizable. I like that, with a couple keystrokes, I can change an ugly, distracting web page into one that is pleasant in appearance and easy to read. Kudos to the developer!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).

Simple and does exactly what it says. No privacy issues like Readability.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
Best one of read assisant Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I will say thit is the best readability add-on, thanks for the author.!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Yes, the default settings seemed ugly. But functionality wise, it's almost perfect. so 5 stars for sure!
Just wish you give us customization ability to change font color and background image.
Very Satisfying Add-On Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This add-on fits my needs like a glove, and is something that I use on a daily basis. It is especially useful on sites that make print formatting difficult, as the redisplayed text transfers almost exactly to the printed page. Since I use both the Print/Print Preview and the Print Edit add-ons to tailor the output before committing to a PDF, this is very handy indeed.
I did not give it five stars, due to the fact that it completely consumes Dictionary Tooltip, forcing me to use an online dictionary, which is a nuisance. Were this to be fixed, I certainly would see a five on the horizon.
Thanks for the nice, clean work.
Ugly ~!!! Rated 2 out of 5 stars
1. Little Text warning is very annoying.
2. Default Background Image is uglily ~!!!
3. Sometime open Wiki will eat the original page?!
Thank you for the feedback
(1) The addon needs to wait for the entire page to load before it can start modifying the content. Otherwise, we may truncate the page prematurely. With slow internet connections, users may think the addon has "frozen" when actually it is still waiting for the page to load. I also don't like the warning, but it is better than getting frustrated with the addon. Ideally, the target of frustration should be your ISP, but I understand and sympathize.
(2) It is true that some people are distracted by a background image, especially one they don't like. From the earliest versions, there is an option to disable the background image and use a color of your choosing.
(3)The wiki page simply "dims" the original page in the background. Clicking outside the wiki should bring back the original page. If you have an example where the wiki page cannot be exited, please send me the link and I can take a look.
I'm liking this a LOT! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Dolphin Browser on my Android tablet has a plugin like this so I looked for a Firefox extension that would work on my desktop computer. This works beautifully. I enabled the hot key and it is wonderful.
I often use <control> + left click on links to open them in a new tab. I notice that if I right click on a link, then <control> + left click on Tranquility in the context menu, the link opens in a new tab with Tranquility enabled. THAT is how I do my reading.
Thanks for the great extension!
Simple, Clean, Up-To-Date! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a wonderful addon that does an excellent job of reducing the level of clutter on your screen, combining the effecctive utilities of NoScript and Adblock to ensure privacy and security.
My only request is this: It needs a right-click context menu option to Tranquilify the current window.
its fantastic! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
thanks a lot no troubles with my ad-dons and i can see that you are not watching us!!
(not ad-ware not spy) keep it up!!!
Reply to dear developer Rated 5 out of 5 stars
1) I directly throw readability away because it's not running on local machine. Privacy make sense to me, so...I love this one(for many reasons actually. eg. it cooperates very well with pentadactyl and this is where I hate reverting since I don't intend to use mouse clicking "proceed anyway").
2) Lovely : )
Tranquility is superb Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have used almost all add-ons of this type and I wish to say Tranquility has addressed all that I wanted. This is the best of this kind & I hope that very soon this will be considered a featured add-on by AMO.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
A better solution Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I've been using Tranquility for over a month, and have found that it has several advantages over other reading-enhancement add-ons that I've tried over the past two years. First, it displays graphics that are part of the article, rather than removing them. Second, it displays hyperlinks that are outside of the article text (though whether you'll like that is a matter of individual taste). Finally, I've been impressed with the dev's responsiveness to addressing problems with specific web pages. Of course, that means that I've encountered occasional bugs, but at least they are addressed rapidly.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.1).
Useful addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Tranquility makes web pages easier to read as it only shows the text you actually want to read, same as Readability but fasterThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.6).
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I just downloaded and tried it and I am impressed. Does exactly what is claimed and what I was looking for. Thank you.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.6).
Thanks for the feedback. Glad you find it useful.
Yes, it works. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Oops. Sorry, I tested 1.0.3 by mistake.
Yes, font-increasing works like a charm in 1.0.4. This instant updating is a cool feature.
Also this idea with FreeDictionary and Wikipedia is a great one, thanks a lot. But I couldn't figure out how to close the pop-up window with FreeDictionary and Wikipedia info. I don't see any close buttons there, and clicking on the background doesn't do anything.
Update: Ok, I got it. All I needed to do was to click the Tranquility button on the addon panel. Anyway, I think this should be more intuitive like clicking on the background, for example. )
Thanks for the feedback. You can hide the panel by either using Ctrl+Alt+W or Ctrl+Alt+D (the keyboard shortcuts should toggle that panel) too.
I'll work on the background click next; that is a good idea and I saw a similar comment from you for another addon review. So, I already have that on my list of things to do (will also get working on the custom background image shortly).
Update: I've submitted version 1.0.5 for preliminary review that hides the wikipedia/freedictionary panel when you click anywhere on the document outside the panel. You may have to wait a couple of days for the update to get approved and pushed.
