You may also want to try Owl, a light add-on built specifically for this purpose, and very much Dark Reader for Chrome. (Disclaimer: I also happen to be the developer of this [and other] add-ons)

You could use Stylish (FF) --- Chrome and install user styles built for darkness. I'm personally using a few 'skins' on Firefox and Pale Moon. Some sites are a bit buggy and require you to exclude sites from time to time. https://userstyles.org/styles/browse/global?as=1&per_page=50&sort=updated_date&sort_direction=desc I'm using Black Web and ...

Just for completeness, let me repeat the recommendation I gave on Android.SE: There's EPUB3 Reader available on F-Droid and Github (not on Google Play – though an app using the same package name exists there, it's not the same, but obviously based on the original developers engine; long story behind that, not fitting here). Its app description explicitely ...

I tried a lot of cbz readers and found only two apps that do this: Xodo PDF Reader & Editor and Challenger Comics Viewer. Of the two, I prefer Xodo as it has a modern design and in general feels more responsive. Challenger does seem to have more in the way of customisation, though.

I created and maintain an open source extension called Just Read which makes reading articles a lot more pleasant. It has an attractive built in theme but allows you to customize the theme or add your own completely new one. It has features such as Removal of superfluous material such as ads, popus, comments, and styling A GUI editor of the default theme ...

I would suggest you another alternatives: Pocket Someone has already mentioned this extensions. Pocket used to help people save interesting articles, videos and more from the web for later enjoyment. Once saved to Pocket, the list of content is visible on any device — phone, tablet or computer. It can be viewed while waiting in line, on the couch,...

Adobe Acrobat/Reader and Foxit PhantomPDF/Reader have "shared review" functionality that does something similar to what you have suggested with PDF files - comments made by one person are automatically shared to all other people participating in the review. However, there's no chat functionality, and at least one person needs to have the paid software (...

I think the best option is to use Heyzine, it's a pdf to flipbook converter. You can create a flip book and embed it on your site without having to learn anything and without plugins. If you don't want to link external sites, it also allows you to download the html flipbook. In case you need to convert more than one PDF, it has an API to make conversions ...

Try Readable. I am on mobile so can't easily write a full answer, but I think it meets your requirements.

I recommend the Just Read extension by Zach Saucier (he's active on Stack Overflow and Graphic Design as well), available for Chrome at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/just-read/dgmanlpmmkibanfdgjocnabmcaclkmod?hl=en It is open source, actively developed, and also has a premium version with even more features. Just Read's description: With one ...

If you are reading pdfs on a Mac you could try Skim. It has a reading bar which by default focuses on one line. You can also change the colour in the menu item: Skim>Preferences>Display. You can also "invert" the bar so that the rest of the text is hidden. As far as I know you need to drag the bar from one line to the next with the mouse. There is a quick ...

Xodo fulfills the requirements; it supports: zoom two-pages horizontal scrolling (which matches reading from a magazine) is touch based. It has some minor rough edges (my major complaint being not supporting automatic vertical fit), but does the job well.

The Foxit PDF Reader does this nicely.

No idea about RSS, but I'm personally use iBooks from Apple itself to read PDF files. Is has some nice ideas like switching to black background when the light sensor of your iOS device detects that the surrounding is dark.

Try Qoppa PDF Studio. It has Similar tool bar UI as Foxit on Windows.

Tried Master PDF Editor? Though it's not open source (only noticed the tag months after first answering), and it looks like it uses a mostly paid-only model except for Linux that still has a "Free for non-commercial use" version (hidden on their website very well, after the "download for Linux" link) it's still the best PDF editor for Linux I've found.

Evernote clearly seems to be a good replacement for the readability extension. It was tested on Ubuntu 14.04 using Chrome version 42.0.2311.135. You may need to restart your browser after adding the extension. Also installing the Evernote webapplication would be an option to transfer clips from Evernote clearly to a central Evernote repository.
