Readium / Description
EPUB Reader for Chrome
Readium for Chrome is the Google Chrome application based on ReadiumJS, an open source
project of the Readium Foundation. EPUB is a widely adopted portable document format based on Web
Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF).
Improvements and Enhancements in this Release
This release, 2.28.0, includes no new user-visible features, but does include a large number of bug fixes related to navigation and page layout. These result in improved navigation and performance.
Most of these changes were done as part of the development of support for the Hypothes.is bookmarking and annotation plugin. Unfortunately, that plugin is ONLY available in the CloudReader version of ReadiumJS. It is NOT available in the Readium Chrome app. We regret this, but it is simply not feasible to implement that functionality within the Google Chrome app framework.
Also, you can (and are encouraged to) get the Hypothes.is plugin from their site (https://web.hypothes.is/), which WILL work in the Google Chrome browser, but that plugin is NOT compatible with the Readium Chrome app. But it works very well in the Chrome browser itself.
