BeeLine Reader

I recently discovered an excellent Chrome (and Safari) extension that improves how easily and how quickly users can read online text.  As a spec ed teacher, I know that the use of color impacts the brain when reading. BeeLine reader uses color to guide readers' eyes from one line to the next. When you're on a webpage, you simply click on the little BeeLine shortcut, and it does this to the text:

Users of the extension rate it 4/5 and say that it helps them, and I've got some of my students ready to try it out. BeeLine is also available on Amazon Kindles and other web applications. If you try it, I'd love to know what you think of it.

Got a favorite Chrome extension for me to try? Feel free to share it. No clue what I'm talking about? Click on the link in the first paragraph of this post.
