Forget surfing. Clicking from page to page, skimming paragraphs, forgetting it immediately. Someone spent quality time writing, I want to spend quality time reading. Like the good old days. Reading beautiful print on paper, understanding, thinking about what I’m reading.
Along these lines, I totally heart that “READER” trick iOS 5 Mobile Safari does with some webpages. Anyone know how to teach Chrome or Firefox to do the same?
If you haven’t heard of it, see http://www.apple.com/ios/features.html#gallery-safari-reader.
This is an absolute revolution in actually reading overstyled, ad-riddled online content. I even find myself hitting the READER button for fairly clean content because it always produces a consistent result.
This really shouldn’t be a revolution. We know people can read/concentrate/comprehend better without distraction!
