More About Permanent Readability

This extension simply adds a context menu to enable/disable Readability ( for the current domain on a permanent basis.

It's designed to work with the Readability Redux extension (, but will also work without it (just a bit slower).

- Added support for wildcards in domain matching
- Fixed the context menu

- Added some help for defining patterns.
- Fixed confirm dialog when leaving options page after making changes.

- Fixes the back button and reload button so that you can cancel readability.
- Separate the domain name from the pattern to make it work more consistently
- Detects presence of Readability Redux correctly.

Note: This version will attempt to update your previously defined patterns although I can't guarantee this will work 100%.

- Improved options page (more consistent with chromium's preferences page) using Nimi Cleanser ( as inspiration.

- Fixed bug (Thanks Ahmed) where the wrong tab got rendered by Readability.

- Removed broken logging

- Fixed a bug where the extension fails first time.

- Now has an options page where you can manually add, remove and edit the patterns that enable Readabiity.
- Default pattern added/removed from the context menu now matches subpages of the url, no longer the domain name on it's own.
