Google Chrome now lets you read articles in the side panel

The Chrome browser side panel currently contains the Reading List, Bookmarks, Results from Google Lens, but it could get even more useful than that as Google plans to expand its functionality to include Reader Mode, according to a new commit from Chromium repository, discovered for the first time. through Leopeva64-2.

Reader mode is already available on Stable Chrome via a developer flag, allowing a simplified layout of the web page to be displayed. But with Reader Mode switching to the side panel, you’ll be able to read articles on the right side panel, letting you better use Chrome’s main window while browsing other websites.

The operation of the new reader mode is quite simple. You need to click on the side panel, located on the right side of the Omnibox, to open it. You will then need to click on the Player Mode tab to move it to the side panel. If you want to switch to another tab and see it on the side panel, you need to close the panel and then reopen it. You can see the GIF below to develop a better understanding of the feature.

The new reader mode is currently available in Chrome Canary, which means it’s currently in development. So. It’s safe to assume that Google will add the feature to the Stable channel in the near future. In the meantime, you can download Chrome Canary here from this link.
