Reading long reddit comments ( AskReddit, WritingPrompts, AskScience etc. ) is no longer a pain. Try Readr for Reddit, and view individual comments in a clean design, optimised for readability. Just press 'read' on any comment, and open up the Readr viewer.
Works on all subreddits as well as self posts!
Firefox and safari versions under development 😀
NEW : Night Mode, Alternate font style and a new options page!
TIP : Press 'Esc' to quit the reader UI and go back to reddit.
How To Use :
1. Install the Extension
2. Go to your favorite subreddit and open the discussion on the first interesting link you find
3. Under the post, press the 'read' button (Present besides the permalink button)
4. Happy reading
While I have thoroughly tested this extension, this is still a one man operation and is very much in beta. Any Feedback / Question are welcome!
