FastReader is a tool that enables humans to achieve great reading speeds. It works by showing words of sentences with large frequency at the same spot. This allows the user to read without the need to move the eyes. It works by selecting the desired text and then by clicking the icon in the bar the speed can be adjusted, after which the reader can be started.
Risk impact

FastReader requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install FastReader if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

FastReader has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Funktioniert wunderbar, fliegt aber über alle Wörter gleichschnell, dh. besonders lange Wörter sind kaum lesbar
