Vertical Reader Mode: Why it matters
With the launch of 1.14 yesterday, Vivaldi became the first browser to offer a Vertical Reader Mode to its users. But how significant is that?

Chinese people read vertically 100 years ago, but now no one reads vertically in mainland China.
(but I don't know how people read in Taiwan)

Do the long line lengths make for hard reading?Reply Quote 0 1 Reply Last reply

Out of curiosity, for the languages that read vertically, what is the direction of reading? Top to bottom then left to right?
Traditionally, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean are written vertically in columns going from top to bottom and ordered from right to left, with each new column starting to the left of the preceding one.
@ugly: if you have ever read the japanese comic book, you will know.

@chenmingjiongjiong: True. So when I read classical Chinese poetry online, I use the vertical reader mode to make it look as close to the original form as possible. Once upon a time, a wise man in China also said: "If a man keeps cherishing his old knowledge, so as continually to be acquiring new, he may be a teacher of others."Reply Quote 0 1 Reply Last reply
@paul1149: More or less. I personally like it when they write about 40 characters and start a new line.Reply Quote 0 1 Reply Last reply
@chenmingjiongjiong: It's a shame that most books in China and Hong Kong are printed horizontally now. But Taiwanese still keep it vertical.
This is how internationalization should be!
