Fika 為瀏覽器加入 Kindle 閱讀效果,設定更符合習慣的瀏覽模式現今網頁瀏覽器會內建「 閱讀模式」功能,可以在閱讀文章時提供更好的瀏覽體驗,包括移除會影響閱讀的廣告,還能重新排版,依照使用者的瀏覽習慣顯示文字大小、配色和字型,不過當前 Google Chrome 還沒有內建閱讀模式,但可透過一些 Chrome 擴充功能做到類似效果,像是前段時間介紹的「 Clearly 瀏覽器閱讀器,專注模式還能幫你念文章 」就是相當好用的閱讀輔助工具。 本文要介紹的「 Fika」源自瑞典語,主要是形容和朋友午後的咖啡茶飲,類似於下午茶悠閒放鬆的感覺,定位在提供更好的閱讀瀏覽體驗。Fika 是一款 Google Chrome 外掛, 支援多國語系,能在文章頁面啟用並將內文抓取後重新排版組合,移除各種廣告、視窗或混亂的網頁版型,讓使用者能更專注於閱讀內容。 Fika 提供四種不同的配色主題,亦可調整文字大小和字型 ,將內文的各個標題段落抓取出來呈現於側邊欄,使用者閱讀時就可以快速跳轉到特定的內容部分,若你平常很習慣閱讀文章,或許可試試看 Fika,讓你在瀏覽時有獲得更好的效果。 STEP 1 開啟 Fika - Reader Mode 擴充功能頁面,點選右上角藍色「 加到 Chrome 」按鈕下載。 安裝後會在右上角出現一個 Fika 藍色標誌,要開啟閱讀模式時只要點選這個按鈕或是透過快速鍵 Alt + R(Mac 是 Option + R )。 STEP 2 在免費資源網路社群的文章頁面中點選 Fika 按鈕,開啟閱讀模式,左側會跳出一個側邊欄工具,可以從 Table of Content 擷取出來的標題快速跳到特定內容範圍。 STEP 3 點一下左上角的字型圖示,設定文字大小、佈景主題配色和字型,佈景主題的顏色有白色、黃色、深藍色和黑色四種模式。 在中文跟英文內容方面會提供不同的字體選項,中文的話可以看到黑體、宋體、楷體和圓體,調整後會立即變換,設定一下文字大小就能有最佳閱讀效果。 下圖是切換到深藍色佈景主題、文字大小為 Medium 的狀態下,顏色不會太深,瀏覽上也不像白色那麼刺眼、難以長時間閱讀。 如果你偏好深色模式,那麼黑色的佈景主題也是個不錯的選擇,不過在文字上就會以白色呈現,可能對有些人來說黑色過暗反而不容易閱讀,實際還是要以自己瀏覽的體驗為主,經過幾次調整我仍偏好白色佈景主題,而字體大小部分我會選擇稍大,閱讀較為舒適。 啟用閱讀模式可將網頁中干擾閱讀的部份移除 提供四種配色模式,亦可調整閱讀器文字大小、字型 擷取文章標題段落,以超連結方式更快跳轉到需要的內容

How is is different from the in-built reader mode that browsers already provide?

@abhib As I know, Chrome doesn't have a built-in reader mode on desktop. Safari and Edge do have a reader mode for certain websites but they don't support auto-generated table of content. Thanks a lot for your comment.

As a heavy web reader, I finally got the kindle-like reading experience in Chrome. The four custom themes including night mode are beautiful. And the auto-generated table-of-content is super useful when reading long articles!

@bradchen The table of content swallows some spaces in the chapter titles, e.g. "Ducksto the rescue" instead of "Ducks to the rescue".

@________sandro_ Good catch. I just verified that this is a bug for non-break spaces (nbsp;). Will fix it in next version. Thank you.

Have you guys looked at outline.com ? How does your product differ from theirs
Brad Chen
Brad ChenMaker@bradchen · CEO, wemart
@akash_joshi Thanks for sharing this. I just checked outline.com. It seems more like an annotation tool for the web. Fika is an easy-to-use Chrome extension that provides kindle-like reading experience and auto-generated table of content.

It looks pretty, but styling doesn't work for me. Tried on Medium, images are gone.
