A fantastic extension. It's lightweight, and does exactly what it says it will do.
I'm truly astounded by the accuracy of this extension thus far. Excellent work!
My primary comments are on the user interface - excellent... This UX is _the_right_design for this product, it's not trying to be anything other than what it is: a fun useful tool.
With the amount of time I spend researching data online - TLDR is the perfect time saving device. Excellent tool for research!
It's extremely helpful for studying, becoming a pro historian via wikipedia, and I've only had it for a matter of minutes. Anyway, thank you.
TLDR Plugin now summarizes content in multiple languages: English, German, Spanish, and French!
Do you ever get bored with long pages that seem to go on forever?
Do you ever get frustrated that some pages turn out to be not what you wanted?
Do you sometimes just want a short summary of a complicated news story?
Are you overwhelmed with trying to find the right page as a reference for your writing?
Do you like sloths?
If your answer is yes to any of these, then the TDLR plugin is exactly what you need. It uses our proprietary language heuristics engine, Liquid Helium, to intelligently reduce online content down to summaries of four different lengths. Use it to quickly get to the gist of a long page or pre-screen search results. Get concise summaries of news, blog posts, Gmail communications, SalseForce data, Zendesk support histories, and academic and corporate content on your intranet. And on top of all that, it has a sloth. How great is that?!
Don’t believe us? Just paste some text in the form field below (at least 6 sentences), click the "tldr it" button, and watch the magic transpire!
Yes. All sufficiently advanced science is indistinguishable from magic.
Actually, the plugin uses Liquid Helium, our language heuristics engine, to analyze and understand long-form content. The plugin then synopsizes it — reducing content to a more desirable length of text, by analyzing the content's language usage and writing style.
We use “fluff” detectors that can remove sentences that are extraneously long, wordy, overly detailed, repetitive, redundant, unnecessary (in other words, sentences like this one). This leaves you with a concise version of the content that can be easily expanded back if parts or all of an article sparks your interests.
