Distraction-free reading on the Web, with Hermit: no ads, no navigation bars, no clutter.
For any article that you come across in Hermit, you can view a simplified & cleaned-up Reader View, which utilizes Hermit’s custom article parsing technology.
Once you start using this, you’ll want to read every article this way. No data is ever saved or sent to any external servers — no adding to lists, no history. Ideal for quick reads!
Reader Mode in Hermit is optimized for legibility, with 4 high-contrast color schemes: White, Sepia, Dark, and Black (for AMOLED screens). Save your eyesight from those pesky grey-on-grey pages.
Reading at Night? Hermit keeps you sane, either with the Dark or Black color scheme in Reader Mode, any one of the Dark Page Styles.
Choose from a large collection of hand-curated fonts, optimized for legibility of long texts, and many font sizes.
When we started working on Reader Mode, we tested many open-source text extraction engines, but found none to be good enough. So we created our own fork, Crux, and improved it sufficiently to support all the features we wanted. And we’ve open-sourced all our work: if you’re an Android developer, check it out: we’d love for all of us to share a solid, robust text extraction library so that we can improve it collaboratively.
