In an effort to make reading online a faster experience, speed reading sites such as Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari are introducing new features and tools to help users speed read faster.
According to Google, the new speed reading tools are “a set of options that speed readers through pages faster, so they can read more quickly and efficiently.”
Users of the Chrome browser, which is commonly used to browse the web, can set the site to auto-play text that they have typed into the browser’s search bar.
Other options include an “Advanced” mode, which helps users quickly navigate through the site, and a “Speed” mode that lets users browse pages faster.
As noted in the official Chrome FAQ, the speed reading features are only available for users on Chrome’s experimental network.
As such, users who are on the experimental network and who have previously installed Chrome will not benefit from the new features.
However, Chrome users on other browsers will be able to access these features.
The full list of features that can be used with speed read mode includes:Search and navigation for pages in a search box, such as the search bar, on the right side of the page.
Speed reading mode lets users search for information at the speed of a human being reading it, such that the speed reader can read quickly through the text.
Users can choose to enable the “Advanced mode” and access other speed reading options.
Users who have the experimental “Speed mode” option will be unable to access the new “Advanced speed reading” features, according to Google.
For those on Firefox and Safari who have not yet upgraded to the experimental mode, they can still access the speed read features by using the “Settings” menu and “Options.”
Users on Safari will still be able access the “Speed Mode” option, but it will not be enabled.
Speed read mode also offers the ability to change how long a page takes to load, according the Chrome website.
This option can be set to 100% and can be turned off, according Chrome’s website.
The Speed mode option is also accessible from the Firefox menu.
