Speed Read any Site with Squirt.io

We’ve already discussed how great it is to make any website more readable with a simple bookmarklet. Take it to the next step by speed reading the text on any website using Squirt.io.

Click here to speed read this article!

This simple bookmarklet will reformat any page to a large, readable, and customizable speed-reading layout. You can change the rate of speed, pause and play, and go back ten seconds if you miss anything. It highlights one letter of each word red to help you focus your eye for better speed reading. 

Since it’s a bookmarklet, Squirt can be added to any desktop or mobile browser you like and invoked with a click. Give it a try next time you have a long, dry article you need to read through.

In related news, I just discovered OpenSpritz, which does the same thing in a possibly more graceful way. I’ll explore and report back. 😉

Happy reading!
