Get Rid of Distractions with the Just Read Extension!

It doesn't take too long to get distracted while reading on the Internet. You are browsing through Twitter and find an amazing blog post, only to get distracted by the Amazon advertisement for that product you have been looking at.

Perhaps you want students to read an article and avoid those distracting ads or links. You can now get rid of these distractions on your Chrome Browser using the Just Read Chrome Extension.

How Does It Work? 

First, install Just Read from the Chrome Store.

  • Use the trash can icon to delete advertisements, links, images, text, and any other distractions. 
  • Use the pencil icon to customize the appearance of text, font color, and text size.
