What is Read Mode?
Puts Google Chrome into read mode for a pleasant reading experience.
Just click on the glasses icon in the address bar, the current page will turn into a nice-to-read black on white page allowing you to read without forcing your eyes. Ads and Flash animations are also removed while on read-mode. Click the icon again and everything will go back to normal.
The extension is no longer updated. Last version, 1.0.6, released in September 2012, can be still downloaded from Chrome Web Store.
