Reader Mode: Activate the reader-friendly view in Chrome first






Integrating a helpful function into your software and then hiding it for more than a year does not make much sense. But that’s exactly what Google does with the reading mode in its browser. How to use the function.

Most browsers have a reading mode. The latter makes websites easy to read and also hides annoying elements. The reader mode is characterized above all by a clear font and high-contrast black and white display. The same applies to hiding advertisements and controls, as well as displaying them in a column. Google Chrome also has a reading mode, but this must first be activated once.

The reading mode hides annoying elements of a website. However, it must first be activated in Google's Chrome browser in order for it to be available.

The reading mode hides annoying elements of a website. However, it must first be activated in Google’s Chrome browser in order for it to be available.

That’s how it’s done:

First start the browser, enter the command chrome: flags in the address line and scroll down to the entry “Enable Reader Mode”. Then click on the selection button to the right, select the option “Enabled” and continue with “Relaunch” below. Restart the browser and go to a website of your choice, for example www.pcwelt.de. If you select an individual post there, the new reading mode symbol will appear at the top right at the end of the address line. With a click of the mouse you switch on the easy-to-read display, clicking again deactivates it.
