Hey @j471n love your article. Especially Bionic reading. Recently discovered it myself and I absolutely love it! Also Wappalyzer using for years. But I found gettoby.com/ much better bookmarker manager than Raindrop. You might check it out!
Peace 😃

I didn't use it but it's looking interesting. One issue with gettoby.com is that it's just an extension and a web interface. It does not have cross-platform support as raindrop.io does. Apart from this, It is amazing and has a rich UI. Thanks for the suggestion mate :)

The Speechify Text-to-Speech (TTS) and Hover Zoom+ links in the table of contents aren't working. The name in the anchor doesn't match the href in the link.
