The drawback mentioned here is that by default the reading mode of Google Chrome is disabled, and therefore if you want to use it, you must enable it manually.
Google has released an update for its browser and although Chrome 75 is not, at first glance, the most exciting of the versions (with the main focus on the solution of errors); it contains an ingeniously hidden function. It is hidden inside the browser: a secret reader mode. This is disabled by default, but it can be easily enabled if you are know-how. This is what you need to do. To enable the new feature, first check that you are running the latest version of Chrome.
Google has been experimenting with this function intermittently in the desktop version of Chrome for several years, but now it is available on the flags screen. Maybe in the future, Google decides to incorporate it by default in the Chrome interface for easier access and more comfortable use. Some steps are shown to you that help you how to activate and use the read mode of the Google Chrome browser.
