For many people, it’s not possible to fully read every interesting article presented on an average day and still have leftover time to spare.

Luckily, Google Chrome’s extension, TLDR: Summarize Anything, will summarize all the articles on your reading list. With this extension, you can get a summary, a 25% version of the article, a 50% version, and even see the full article but in an easier to read display.
