Is it possible to enable the "Reader View" of Chrome for Android, when Chrome doesn't offer it?
On iOS, Safari leaves the choice entirely to the user, who has to click a button – which is good, as Chrome's popup-bar is a bit distracting, and especially because it means that the user is free to enable it on any website.
In Firefox, the button isn't always offered, but display of the Reader mode can be forced with
about:reader?url=URL, which can easily be turned into a bookmarklet.
But for Chrome, I couldn't find any option of forcing Reader View yet, and more often than not it isn't offered on the very articles, where it would help the most, such as those with bad color choices and overly obstrusive ads.
