Does Speedreader work?

I have enabled the Speedreader in brave://flags and it doesn’t appear to make any difference in loading and reading sites. I’ve also tried to use the Reader Mode that comes from Chrome, but I’ve had no success either. So, is there any benefit in using the Speedreader? Does it actually make loading pages faster? Is it ready yet? And is there any way to use a Reader Mode in Brave that doesn’t include extensions?

Brave Version: 1.13.82

Hi @Isaac,
Speed reader only works in select sites, check out https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/360045031392-How-Do-I-Enable-SpeedReader for a list of sites.
We should be adding additional functionality to it in the future, e.g. changing font size/family, colour, etc.
