What is Best Reader View?
Best Reader View is a convenient add-on for the Edge browser designed to improve your online reading experience. It removes webpage clutters and displays only the article content, just like Safari's Reader View, but with a special new feature - the focus mode. Among other notable features are beautifully rendered pages, various customizable options like font, size, and themes, ability to open Best Reader automatically, option to take notes or highlight text, the Focus Mode that represents the content in the original page format, and the function to save pages as pdf or print them using Chrome's print command. Most importantly, it prioritizes user privacy by ensuring all processing is done locally within the browser, with no history info leaving your network.
