Use Safari Reader

YOU KNOW HOW SOME web pages contain a really fascinating article you want to read—but the page itself is surrounded by so many ads, graphics, toolbars, and other pixel detritus that you feel like you’re in the middle of a carnival midway? (And don’t you hate that?)

The good news is that iOS 5 has a wonderful feature called Safari Reader. Like its cousin-in-code for the desktop, Safari Reader strips away all the distracting and nonessential graphics and other elements on a page, and presents the article in a nice, easy-to-read format. It’s like a pair of comfy slippers for your eyes.

The bad news? Not every website works with the Reader. In fact, some website operators hate browsers (and browser add-ons) that strip out ads from their pages because that’s how they make money. Still, there are plenty of sites that work well with the Reader.
