How does the Read Mode in the PlayBook Browser work?

Hi, I'm asking myself this question since I saw it the first time. How does this thing separate the content from the rest of the page? Is it an RSS reader? Thanks! lrrm

More or less, yes.

 

It pulls only the text out of the site or whatever your reading.

Re: How does the Read Mode in the PlayBook Browser work?

that's interesting because most sites have a lot of text and HTML5 isn't widespread yet. so we can exclude semantics as criteria. maybe it looks for longer texts and p tags ...
