How to use Chrome Reader Mode — stay focused on what you’re reading

As you’re transversing the Web of all things, learning new things, or researching your interests, you sometimes find some webpages are packed to the gills with videos and images that distract you from your reading experience. Google provides a way to clean things up and give you a text-dominated webpage viewing experience that lacks all the distracting content. 

Thanks to Google Chrome’s hidden Reader mode, you can get a clean reading experience, but first, you have to initiate it. With my ADHD, using Chrome’s Reader mode helps me stay focused on my intended purpose, information gathering. 

Here’s how to enable Goole’s Reader mode and avoid all those distracting videos, images, and ads.
