1. Google Chrome browser comes with a handy feature that cleans websites from sidebars and ads. 2. You can enable Reader Mode by clicking on an icon in an Omnibox.
For a long time, the Reader Mode was an experimental Chrome feature that users could activate by going to Chrome flags.
Right now all users can use Reader Mode without changing anything – and with just one click.
How to enable and use Reader Mode in Chrome browser
1. When you visit a website and want to read an article in a clean interface, simply click on a special icon placed on the right side of Omnibox.
2. You can change:
Font size – 10 levels.
Font face – sans-serif, serif, and mono – these font faces are the same as in Chrome’s main settings.
Background color: white, sepia, and black.
3. Once you set your preferences, they are being kept even after you restart the browser.
4. Reader Mode works also in Incognito Mode.
5. To disable the Reader Mode, simply click on the icon again.
Another way to enable and disable the Reader Mode in Google Chrome is to click on the three-dot menu in the top-right corner and select the option “Enter Reader Mode.”
Please note that the feature may not work on some sites. In this case, you won’t see the dedicated icon in the Omnibox.

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind
by 99U & Jocelyn K. Glei
The world we work in today is not the world of Michelangelo, of Marie Curie, of Ernest Hemingway, or even of Paul Rand. It is a new world, empowered and entranced by the rapid-fire introduction of new technologies—a world where our metaphysical front door is always open, where anyone can whisper in our ear, where a “room of one’s own” no longer means you’re all alone.
Creative minds are exceedingly sensitive to the buzz and whir of the world around them, and we now have to contend with a constant stream of chirps, pings, and alerts at all hours of the day. As these urgent demands tug us this way and that, it becomes increasingly difficult to find a centered space for creativity.
Taking stock of this challenging new landscape, 99U’s Manage Your Day-to-Day assembles insights around four key skill sets you must master to succeed: building a rock-solid daily routine, taming your tools (before they tame you), finding focus in a distracted world, and sharpening your creative mind.
Dedicating a chapter to each of these focus areas, we invited a group of seasoned thought leaders and creatives—Seth Godin, Stefan Sagmeister, Tony Schwartz, Gretchen Rubin, Dan Ariely, Linda Stone, Steven Pressfield, and others—to share their expertise. Our goal was to come at the problems and struggles of this new world of work from as many angles as possible.
Because we each have a unique set of strengths, weaknesses, and sensitivities, it is impossible to prescribe a single approach that will work for everyone. The right solution for you will always be personal—an idiosyncratic combination of strategies based on your own work demands, habits, and preferences.
We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.
