I don't seem to have reader mode working on my Playbook 2.1.0.1032

I turn the reader setting on.

 

Go to a website, turn the Playbook, nothing change. 

 

What am I doing wrong?

You got me, what's the reader mode?

Ha, I don’t have a stupid question this time. LOL.

 

GO to Browser settings, Content, Enable Reader Mode on rotation, On or Off.

 

 I think it supposed to trim all the adv in a webpage and just show content.

I agree, I don't see a difference either.  Reader mode is a great browser feature when you click on the little book icon on the top left corner of the browser.  Perhaps there are certain web pages that allow the rotation feature to function.  I am going to leave it enabled for a while, to see if there is a difference on pages I haven't tried yet.

I have the same issue and I'm on 2.1.0.1526.  I can't even set it to "On" in the browser settings.  I set it to On.  Go back to my browser.  Restart my browser and when I go into settings its turned back to off.  The few times I got it to actually stay "On" it still didn't work which I then went back to settings if it was turned "On" and it was.
