Reading Aids

Night Shift

Night Shift shifts the colors of your browser content to the warmer end of the color spectrum to reduce eye strain.

Study Aids

Super Simple Highlighter

Highlight text on a web page, in a variety of styles. The extension remembers the location & content of each highlight, and attempts to highlight the same passages of text the next time the page is loaded (it does not sync across devices, however).

Google Dictionary

View definitions easily as you browse the web.  Double-click any word to view its definition in a small pop-up bubble, view the complete definition of any word or phrase using the toolbar dictionary, and store a history of words you’ve looked up, so you can practice them later.

Power Thesaurus

View synonyms and antonyms by button in toolbar, right-click or by word selection on any page.
