Even though there are several advanced web browsers like Safari, Bing and Yahoo, Google Chrome is by far the most sought after across all the platforms. What I like most about Chrome is the speed and several user-friendly features such as, “Reader Mode”.

I love reading articles, news or interesting stories on web. At times, some distracting contents and ads seem to slightly disturb me from enjoying my reading time.

Though there are some pretty handy third-party apps like Readability, Instapaper which make reading contents a pleasure, Google Chrome can get the job done for you as well with aplomb. Here is how you can make the best use of Reader Mode on your Android device!
