Microsoft Edge (Build 18945) Reading View & Line Focus

While Microsoft has been improving the features and introducing new features in every Windows 10 build, Microsoft Edge is also evolving with new features. Although Reading View was included in one of the previous builds, with the 18945 build it has been enhanced by including the line focus feature. Line Focus enables one to really focus on what he/she is reading.

For reading view to work, the websites you are visiting should be optimized so that the feature will be enabled.
