Customize Safari Reader.

Overview

CustomReader is a Safari 6 extension that lets you easily customize the look of Safari Reader.

You can change basic formatting options, such as font and color, in an easy-to-use settings panel. For greater control, the Advanced tab of the panel lets you edit a custom stylesheet to override any built-in CSS rule or property of Safari Reader.

In addition, you can have CustomReader automatically activate Safari Reader whenever you visit pages that you specify. (You do so by specifying regular expressions to match specific URLs.)

Another great extension from Canisbos. For me, there are three main reasons that CustomReader beats Safari Reader: 1) it's highly customizable; 2) extensions don't work on tabs where Safari Reader is active, but CustomReader doesn't interfere with them; 3) CustomReader meshes very nicely with the uber-useful Pickpocket extension by the same developer. Also, the default reading view of CustomReader uses left-aligned text rather than Safari Reader's awful justified text. To tweak CustomReader you have to modify its CSS and/or HTML. However, it's quite easy to make some basic changes to the CSS, even with little or no pre-existing knowledge. Here are a couple quick examples. 1) Change font/size/line spacing of the main article text by editing the #story element in the CSS. You can set font size by pixel (px) or point (pt), set normal line spacing or line height in pixels, etc: #story { margin-top: 32px; font: normal 15px/1.5 Helvetica, sans-serif; } #story { margin-top: 32px; font: normal 12pt/20px "Times New Roman", serif; } 2) Change the colour of link text and/or make it underlined: #story a { color: blue; text-decoration: underline; } #story a { color: #006666; text-decoration: none; } It's pretty easy to figure out how to make these sorts of changes just by browsing through the default CSS and seeing how properties are set.

Anyone looking for adjustable Safari Reader print margins look no further. This feature is now hidden in this Safari Extension. I emailed the developer and asked if he could do something with Safari Reader print margins. I like printing from Safari Reader because it formats the page so cleanly and every page comes out the same, but the margins were always right up against the edges of the paper making it impossible to bind the pages. The developer added a feature to this extension in one day that allows the user to adjust the printed margins of Safari Reader. I sent a small donation because I found this so useful.
