Firefox – Reader View
Reader View offers great personalization for many web pages. It also helps minimize distractions online and provides a nicer format if you print a web page. If the web page has Reader View enabled, it will have a book icon in the browser bar.
Activate Reader View, by clicking on the icon. The gray icon will turn orange.
Use the toolbar to adjust:
- font (Sans-serif or Serif)
- font size
- line length
- leading (space between lines)
- colors (light, dark or sepia background)
