Skeptic's Toolbox: Browser Extension


Skeptic's Toolbox is a digital application under the Skeptic's Digest brand. This extension has four main features: red flags tell you if traditionally unreliable jargon is being used; fact score lets you know how reliable an article is, based on citations and external references; highlights allow easy navigation to key content like study conclusions or sample sizes; and finally, the jargon translator puts industry jargon into layman's terms.
