What is EPUBReader?

EPUBReader is a Chrome extension that transforms your browser into an ebook reader. It stands out for its fast and lightweight HTML5 based design. It reads ebooks in the EPUB format without DRM and can open ebooks directly from websites or by double-clicking in the file explorer. The extension doesn't require extra space as it opens ebooks in memory at the location where they are stored. It even supports read-aloud functionality when paired with the Read Aloud extension. Available in 24 languages, EPUBReader can work offline, delivering a seamless reading experience.
