Google Chrome Gets Reading Mode For Optimized Webpage Reading

Too many distractions on the article you’re reading? Reading mode will clean it up.

Google Chrome Gets Reading Mode For Optimized Webpage Reading 30

At BETT 2023 (an education exhibition), Google shows off a few new features coming up for its own web browser. One of the more notable features is Reading Mode – which Android has had since last year for optimized reading experience. On Chrome, it’ll sit inside the dropdown menu from the sidebar.

When using Reading Mode, all the interactive or visual elements on the webpage gets removed when viewed from the sidebar to help users “focus on a page’s primary content.” As mentioned, the cleaned up version of the page will sit on the right side of the browser, which you can resize depending on how much you want to read on a single screen. Aside from that, you can adjust text size, background colors, line spacing and even text margins.

The feature is set to roll out in the Chrome browser (Windows, macOS & Linux) shortly, though no specific version was mentioned; ChromeOS users, meanwhile, will get the feature through version 114 later this year.

Pokdepinion: I’d like to see the feature just make full use of the display – having to read from a sidebar seems like an odd design choice to me.
