Apple Safari 5 is released and there are lot many new features in it. One of them is News Reader which is really good for reading long articles on a busy site. Sometimes you may feel to read an article on web without any distraction from ads, scripts etc. For that, Safari 5 is having an utility named News Reader.

How To Read Articles in News Reader

1. Open any single page from a website. For example, I opened an article from this blog “Internet Techies”. At the end of the URL in address bar, you can see a link named “Reader” in blue background.

2. Click on the link “Reader” on address bar

3. Now a smaller window will open with the content of the article. You can read the article without any ads on Safari browser. On that smaller window, you can see options like “Email the article”, “Print”, “Zoom in/out” as well at the bottom of the window.

4. Done! This way you can read long articles without any distraction. The default font size is really good for your eyes and the style is also very pleasant.
