If you ever used a slow Atom Tablet with 4GB of RAM, you probably noticed how slow Webbrowsers are with a couple of tabs open.

I love reading articles on CodeProject while working in Visual Studio - that's pretty impossible on a Tablet though. RAM runs out real quick. Not to mention that Edge/Chrome experience is mediocre at best.

So I asked CodeProject on Facebook if I could make an UWP App that takes out everything but Text, Code and Images in order to minimize resource consumption and offline reading (cause my tablet has no 3G).

RAM Usage is down by more than 50% in most cases, which I call a success! Just had to inject some custom JS to resize text, images and code properly.

They gave me green light and this is what I got so far:

Article Low Res mode
Article Full Version
Search Results

Already in the store, but hidden (can only be found using store page url) until completion.
