Optimized for Legibility

Brand New Text Extraction Engine

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.
