How to Use Gray Background in Safari on Mac OS X El Capitan

Mac OS X El Capitan has many new improvements and features. One of them is specifically for readers; grey background in Safari. Follow the steps to use it.

Gone are the days when we have to buy special furniture to manage our collection of books. In this era of technology, almost everything is digitalized. Same is the case with books. Most of the newly released books are available in E-book format. iPhone, iPad and Mac have apps that can support E-books.

Apple has taken utmost care to please the community of readers as the number of E-Book readers is increasing day by day. More and more readers are moving to E-books, because it is very easy to carry them with their Apple devices. Traditionally, we had to carry books either in our hand or in our bag. But our hands or our backpack cannot carry more than five to six books. In case of E-books, you can carry as much as you want.
