When you are reading a long article, do you always feel tired of scrolling your mouse (or pressing the keyboard arrow key) to reveal the content under the fold? If you are using Google Chrome, there is an extension to help you tackle this issue.
TelePrompter is a simple extension that only do one thing – set any webpage to autoscroll mode. When set, the webpage will scroll up or down by itself at a regular speed. You can switch the scroll direction with the mouse or keyboard shortcut and change the scrolling speed on the fly.
Here how it works
Install TelePrompter in Google Chrome.
Once the extension is installed, reload the web page you are currently at. Double click at any where on the page. The web page will now automatically scroll by itself.
As it auto-scrolls, you will see a slider just beneath the toolbar. You can drag the slider to increase/decrease the scrolling speed.
In its options page, you can configure the initial speed of the autoscroll and also the range of speed (the lower and upper limit of the slider).
This is a simple extension that allows you to sit back and enjoy your reading without having to bother about mouse scrolling. Is this a must-have extension? Nope. Will it save you time and make you more productive? Probably not. But if you enjoy giving your hand a momentarily break, yet not disrupting your workflow, this could be priceless.
