Q) Can I read part of a page?

A) Yes, just select the text you’d like to read before clicking the bookmarklet.

Q) Where do I submit bug reports and feedback?

A) Github issues is the best (search for your issue before creating it!), but emails to and tweets @squirtio work, too.

Q) I’m a publisher—can I embed Squirt on my site?

A) Absolutely! The bookmarklet will work as a normal <a> tag— you can copy this one. Feature requests on Github will encourage me to clean up the code and make it easy to customize.
