Safari and Firefox offer read mode by default. It is essential for browsing websites without various distractions, such as Intrusive ads or various navigation pop-UPS. Just one click of the button and you will not be distracted from the content anymore. The Chrome browser has a similar feature, and in this article we will tell you how to activate it.

By default, read mode is not available in Chrome, but you can activate it by using the appropriate flag on the experimental features page. In addition, there is an alternative way to add a similar function using extensions, which we will discuss below.

How to activate reading mode in Chrome

To activate the reading mode, go to the experimental functions menu. To do this, enter chrome://flags in the browser's address bar. You can find the desired flag in the search box by the name Enable Reader Mode, or by going to the direct address chrome://flags/#enable-reader-mode .



This parameter is set to Default by default. To enable the function, select Enabled from the drop-down list. After that, confirm the change and restart the browser with the Relaunch button.

After activating the reading mode, its icon will appear in the experimental features section of the browser's address bar on all supported pages. To go, click it and the page will load in a minimalistic interface without any distractions.



To get out of read mode, click the icon again and the page is reloaded into the standard form. If you click on the icon with the letter A in the upper-right corner, a compact settings window opens, allowing you to choose the font, its size and background shade for comfortable reading.
