This week the team got an alpha version of reader mode working. After the page loads, a button will appear in the toolbar allowing you to open that page in reader mode, which is currently in a new tab.
Going forward, the team has decided to start expanding the functionality of the about reader page. To start we will allow people to change their font, change text size, and have light, sepia, and dark modes for easier reading. The buttons to change these settings will be done similar to how PDF.js is set up.
The team is currently in the process of getting all of this code on the meta bug.
Updated on 1 Nov to clarify that Sepia styling is planned as well. – Jared
