Chrome: Sometimes, gauging whether or not you want to read an article is just about how much time you have at a given moment. Readism is a simple little extension that adds average read times to articles so you can make that choice quickly. At the bottom of every article you open up, Readism adds a small reading time indicator. You can adjust how big this box is and how long it stays on the screen on Readism's settings page. The reading time is based on an average, so while it's not exactly a perfect indicator of the time it will take to read an article, it's better than nothing. That said, personalised reading times are supposedly on the way, so that might be worth keeping an eye on in the future.
