"My Reading Mode" is the web filtering extension that filters to specific web sites which you defined. Unlike "Removes unnecessary things later" Ad-Blockers, by the program "Keeps only required things first", it shows to you the necessary content which you want to read quickly.

In order to filter, you need to specify the tag on the web page. But, there is no probrem even if you don't have the knowledge of HTML. You can select a tag easily by clicking a content on the target page by using wizard mode.

In principle, all the JavaScripts are blocked before downloading.Much advertisements and animation are no longer shown because a script is required for almost all web advertising. Of course, You can specify the exception. In addition, if it's a widget of Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, you can add to an exception easily only by clicking the check box.

You can divide into three columns at the maximum, and can assign a text to each column (Column area is able to resize by dragging a mouse). If it's a site of the format includes a keyword in url like dictionary service, you can move a page by entering a keyword at the option search bar.

Shifting to other account or a browser is simple because edited data can output and input as a text.

When you would like to show an original page at a filtered page, please select "Reload without filters" from a context menu.

This reader is for those who like to use CSS/scripts. The complexity of options intrigues yet befuddles me. Works with Style Sheets and Scripts, but seems to work only on a whitelist basis.. so you would need to set up before viewing a page. I tried an all-accepting view for a webpage, and it didn't work for me. There is an instruction guide. This one takes learning. Last update April 2022

This extension takes the best (in my opinion) approach to declutter a web page from intrusive elements. It does this not by deleting selected elements (which identities may constantly change), but by showing only selected elements (which identities are usually stable).
