The latest version of Firefox for Android brings a new feature named as Reader Mode to mobile users. In simple sense, this Reader Mode allows distraction free reading, with no advertisements and no extra web elements.
When you want to concentrate on reading the website or blog, then many times these advertisements pose a distraction to our reading. Reader mode displays an easy-to-read version of the web page, without any unnecessary elements.
Apple’s Safari browser already comes with Reader mode on different platforms like the iOS app, Android app and Desktop version also. It strips out menu, website navigation, ads and other elements on the page and improves overall reading experience. No more clutter anymore.
How to Enable Reader Mode on Firefox for Android
Update your Firefox browser to the latest version if you are using an older version. Open the web page where you want to enable reader mode. From the address bar, tap on the book icon to enable Reader mode. That’s all you need to do and now you can enjoy pure reading pleasure. This should be very useful for reading long blog posts easily and without clutter.
When in Reader mode, you can see a small bar at the bottom of the screen. This bar enables you to save the article for reading it later, change the size of font, change theme from black on white or from white to black.
Reader mode on Firefox for Android works great on Android tablets too. Go ahead, try it out on your Android device and take advantage of this new feature.
