Hey, my name is Argyris, this my first producthunt, launch. We developed a simple chrome extension adapting Medium's like reading time estimation for Gmail. We’ll appreciate your feedback and comments whether it be positive or negative, so we can develop further. /// We don't store or process any data server–side, everything is processed on the client.

@argyrispro That's cool! You could also make this a GMail addons. Would be easier to use it on every pc without the need to install it many times. But great work btw! I like the idea.

it would be great if the plugin would assess my existing emails next to the mail topic. like i am checking all these stupid promo mails in my inbox - and the plugin shows reading time values next to the topics. Doable, what do you think? @argyrispro

I just tested it out! Works GREAT! Although wouldn't it be nicer, if it scans my existing emails and tells me the estimated time to read that email? I'd read more emails and would help me achieve inbox zero.
