I've only tried it on 1 website, but I found that the ratio of bold text to regular text to be off. The majority of the text was bold and therefore it didn't work as well as the example .

so far, no issues! im using this for fanfic and book sites such as ao3, wattpad, etc etc to make reading the long paragraphs easier. it works great. i usually end up rereading the same lines over and over again and i havent done it once with this addon, its really helping me to focus more and stop "read stuttering" lol. i really recommend. it fulfills its purpose and i havent had any issues with using it.
