Web Parser Toolkit

Extract meaningful content from the chaos of web pages

Mercury is a complete web-parsing toolkit that transforms web pages into clean text. It includes:

  • Mercury Reader: A Chrome extension that declutters web pages for distraction-free reading
  • Mercury AMP Converter: A service that speeds up web pages on mobile
  • Mercury Web Parser: An open source software library for engineers to use in their own apps

Read without distraction

Clear the clutter from your articles. Mercury Reader is a Chrome extension that removes ads and distractions, leaving only text and images for a beautiful reading view on any site. Get it in the Chrome Web Store.

AMP in one line of code

With just one line of code, the Mercury AMP Converter gets your publication ready for Google AMP. Get lightning-fast load times and boosted search results on mobile. Install it on your web site.

Making a more meaningful web

Mercury Web Parser makes any web page make sense. Mercury Web Parser is a JavaScript library that takes any web article and returns only the relevant content—headline, author, body text, relevant images and more—free from any clutter. It’s reliable, easy-to-use and free for use in your apps. Get the code.

Mercury Goes Open Source!

The engine that parses meaningful content out of web pages is now open source.

Open is better


Now that Mercury Parser is open source, you can make it even better–for everyone.

If Mercury does a less-than-perfect job parsing an article from your favorite web site, write and submit a custom site parser guaranteed to get it right quickly, every time.

We’re excited about all sorts of ways the Mercury community will contribute to the project.
