_what we did
We developed a cross-platform browser extension that enabled us to view and mark the content of any website. The marker-mode grants everyone the opportunity to highlight the 10 most critical passages. In the normal mode sentences, that have already been marked are highlighted and color-coded according to their critical score and displayed to the users accordingly. A specially developed algorithm calculates the color of a passage depending on the frequency, that the passage was marked by users, in relation to other marked passages in the text and some other metrics.
