How to use read mode in Chrome
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.
