I just enabled this on my mobile and holy crap is it awesome. I haven't given it a shot on my desktop yet but if it's anything like it was on my phone it offers a nice and clean reading experience similar to Readability or Evernote's Clearly.

The DOM Distiller is an exciting open-source project created by the chromium team whose goal is to provide a better reading experience by distilling the content of the page. Yes, we're talking about Reader mode here: a mobile-friendly viewing mode for Chrome mobile but not only.
If you're on Mobile, you can already open Chrome on your mobile device, turn on the Reader Mode flag at chrome://flags#enable-reader-mode-toolbar-icon, relaunch and tap on the "Reader mode" icon in the toolbar to try it out.
If you're on desktop, playing with it is as easy as running chrome with the –enable-dom-distiller switch. Once it's done, you'll notice a new "Distill page" menu item.
For info, the internal debug page is chrome://dom-distiller. And since you're still there, open your JS console and give a try to some themes with useTheme('sepia') or useTheme('dark').
