Re: Anyway to access Reader Mode in Browser directly?

I believe reader mode is a property of the browser app itself, likely implemented using custom JavaScript and CSS, and maybe other things like parsing and modifying the HTML for the page. To do the same thing with a WebView I think you'd have to re-create the whole thing yourself.
