Arc's secert reader mode

Planted September 9, 2023

One of the features I’ve always liked in Apple’s Safari web browser is the Safari Reader mode, which removes ads, navigation or other distracting elements from a web page.

This works perfectly for me on iOS but on my laptop, I mainly use Google Chrome and Arc for my web browsing.

Chrome has a reader type view hidden under chrome://flags and by then searching for ‘reading mode’ but it’s still a bit complicated to enable and doesn’t provide the same view as Safari’s web browser.

It turns out, Arc for macOS has a hidden reader mode that can be enabled on a web page by pressing the option + command + r keys together which is much more similar to Safari’s reader mode.

Note - Arc’s reader mode is still in beta but does a great job regardless
