How to enable Google's clever new Chrome Reading Mode right now

Share on

Google's got a great way to enhance your online reading experience, but you've really gotta work to find it.

You know what I'm talkin' about, right? (Insert awkward pause here.) On most modern websites, you're bombarded with an army of over-the-top pop-ups, promos, and other assorted ads every time you try to open up an enticing article. (Insert awkward eye-darting here.) Media is a business, of course, but still: As a mere mammal trying to ingest interesting info, it can sometimes get to be a bit much. (Insert forced awkward smile here.)

 

The business part is what makes the whole thing especially tricky — 'cause for better or for worse, online publications and the lowly internet scribes who power 'em rely on revenue from all that advertising in order to exist. That means if you use some sort of aggressive ad-blocker, you're hurting that company's odds of survival and potentially also jeopardizing the content creators' ability to earn a paycheck.

 

But fret not, my friend, for Google's got an awesome new answer for us. It's a smart system that empowers you to view a sane, sensible, and dare I say even enjoyable version of any web page you're viewing. It'll be free from ads and other distractions and optimized for easy reading. It'll even be customizable if you're feeling fancy and want to take control of exactly which fonts, colors, and spacing settings are present. And despite all of that, it'll still technically allow ads to be shown and the page's full original form to load at the same time, whether or not you actively view it.

 

 

Best of all? It's available on any computer running Chrome this second — if you know where to look.

 

the little dropdown menu at the top. (It probably says "Reading list," to start.)

 

Select "Reading mode" from the list that appears.

 

And hey, how 'bout that? You've got a clutter-free, distraction-free, nicely formatted version of whatever page you were viewing right in front of you — next to the original.
