Reading mode for Opera

  • In the recent past the Opera team have really added plenty of very useful features in the Opera browser. I particularly like the built in ad blocker and battery saver. I would like to request the Opera team to introduce a distraction-free read mode for Opera. It would benefit people reading long articles online because many websites are filled with poor ads and click-bait distractions which can be removed for an uniform and useful reading experience. Alongside it would be even better if articles across the web can be saved for reading later. Large articles could then be read across devices with use of Opera's Synchronisation.

  • You can block ads, you know. Since some ads are loaded with malware, I think that is a good idea anyway.

  • @concretable I do use the built in ad blocker a lot. But recently many news websites are detecting ad blockers and are restricting access until the ad blocker whitelists their website. Additionally on websites where ad blocker does work, blank spaces are left behind where ads are supposed to be. I was just thinking a distraction free reading mode with suitable font and simple background would be a nice addition to opera's impressive set of features.
