A free summarizer browser add-on for Chrome and Firefox

I created a browser add-on that summarises news and blog articles, with a particular focus on filtering out nonsense (as often featured in A.I. articles). You can find the links for Chrome and Firefox at the start of this article wherein I also explain my methods:

Below is an example. Try it out at your leisure  :)
I would also appreciate ratings or reviews, as that would help raise the add-on's rank in the webstore so more people can find it. I think the internet would be a better place if we could all fast-forward through clickbait.

Installed on Chrome. Works well on a few pages I tried, but sometimes does not work.

If you go to your page for example : https://artistdetective.wordpress.com/2017/12/02/how-to-summarize-the-internet/

The summary is :

Interesting project, more ambitious than the little one I made last year.  8)

Congratulations, you have found an easter egg ;) The summary of my blog article is a built-in joke, because I knew people were going to try it there first.

Any other pages where it doesn't work well? It can only summarize once the page has finished loading, by the way. That's due to the extension system itself, and I did come across one news site that kept loading advertisements without end.

Do you still have a link to your project? I might have missed it last year.

You know, there was a half thought in my mind that this was intentional :)

It's working well, but on Sundays I tend to game a lot, but I will try it out during the week when I read more.

Re the adverts I have an ad blocker so that may take care of that ?

It's not as in depth as yours and is only pointed at Wikipedia. Jess uses it though for her research feature.
