Bionic Reader Safari Extension for macOS and iOS

Safari Extension to allow you to enable bionic reading on any website. Builds for both macOS and iOS.

For the meantime, this is only a macOS release. You can build for iOS but I cannot distribute outside of the App Store.

Will aim to have signed and published on the App Store soon, so that you can easily install on both iOS and macOS
