i love the new Safari 5 'Reader' feature, but Safari is not my main browser. I mostly use Chrome, and sometimes Firefox. Does anybody know if there's an extension that does the same? I've been using Arc90's Readability, which is very nice, but isn't quite the same (it doesn't do multi-page, for instance).

Readability is the default answer here. – Spiff Jun 29 '10 at 17:42
Not sure how comparable the feature set is, but I've been using Instapaper Text bookmarklet for this purpose. Similar to Readability, says the site. – fideli Jun 29 '10 at 17:46
Yeah, Instapaper is pretty great too, but it isn't quite as nice as Safari's Reader. That also doesn't do multi-page. – Hay Jun 29 '10 at 23:14

You might like to take a look at the iReader Chrome extension. It will support multi-page articles, and there's a version available for Firefox as well.

Wonderful! It mimics Safari's 'Reader' button very well. I wrote a little blogpost about this plugin. Hopefully other people will pick it up too.… – Hay Aug 19 '10 at 21:26

I think you can try a combination of Readability and AutoPagerize to make that happen. AP first, so the content is all loaded, and then Readability to get it displayed nicely.

P.S. For a lot of sites, you can click through to the "Print" view and then enable Readability on that, as the "Print" view is often the full article/post.
