    A reader mode browser extension to remove distractions from web articles.

    Project mention: Show HN: Reader Mode that shows Hacker News comments inline | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-06-18

    Hey! This is a reader mode browser extension I built that hides noisy page elements rather than extracting and re-rendering only the page text. The idea is to not make all articles look the same [0], have them still render graphs, and ideally to work in more cases.

    There are a few "tricks": patching the site CSSOM to apply simpler mobile styles even at desktop width, detecting the likely main text & removing its non-text siblings, blocklists for classnames that contain words like "sidebar", and testing this on a few hundred popular sites.

    I got carried away and also added a dark mode, page outlines, private annotations & inline Hacker News comments.

    The last feature works by parsing every top-level HN comment with a quote in it (formatted with > or "") within a few minutes, and anchoring these quotes in the related article HTML. So when you click a link on HN you’ll see the parts people are talking about while reading. [1]

    The code is all on GitHub!

    [1] It's fun to try this on some of the "HN classics" that got 30+ quote comments over the years. The list at hn.lindylearn.io/best shows the number of “annotations” an article has beneath its title.
