Google today makes Chrome 75 available for Android, Chrome OS, Linux, Mac and Windows. The main focus of this version is to add internal APIs and update existing functions. Developers did discover one hidden novelty: read mode.

The new reading mode is hidden in the flags submenu of Chrome. This function deletes all the elements that can be deduced from a web page so that you can read a long article carefully. You can activate the function anywhere, but you have to do this manually every time. You cannot permanently enable the new reading mode on every page.
