3. Change Reader mode font and back­ground colour

iPad&iPhone user - - FEATURE -

One of the most handy fea­tures in Sa­fari, Reader mode re­for­mats a clut­tered web page to make it eas­ier to read. To ac­ti­vate Reader mode, all you have to do is tap the lit­tle four-line but­ton on the left side of the ad­dress bar. By de­fault, the back­ground colour for Reader is bright white, while the font is the rel­a­tively bor­ing sans-serif San Fran­cisco – bet­ter than try­ing to read tiny text on a busy web page, cer­tainly, but not as sooth­ing as the silky fonts and warm back­ground hues in the iBooks app.

If you look in the top cor­ner of a Reader-en­abled page, you’ll see a tell­tale ‘aA’ but­ton. Tap it, and a menu of al­ter­na­tive fonts and back­ground colours will ap­pear, per­fect for switch­ing to a sup­ple serif font with an easy-on-the-eyes cream back­drop.
