Steps to reproduce



Repro Steps:

Just navigate to some news site with a Modern UI IE on a German Windows 8.1 update 1 system and you’ll see the blue button in the navigation bar.

Expected Results:

I assume that caption should be the simple present of read, so “Lesen” would make more sense. I think that was the caption before the update. Either use that or copy the “Leseansicht” (read mode) from the tooltip.

Apart from that little glitch, read mode is a brilliant idea. Maybe you could also bring it to the Desktop variant of IE. At least I was not able to find it there.

Actual Results:
