Is there a way to made Chrome go into a 'reader' mode like Evernote Clearly. Ideally an extension for Chrome or maybe a user script like Stylish.

I'm aware of these extensions and Chrome's 'Distil Mode' but that reader mode is exited when you click on further links and doesn't start in that mode.

You could try Readability for Chrome.

Its major drawback is that, unlike Evernote's discontinued Clearly, it sends the webpage to its own server which then returns a cleaner version. Consequently, pages behind a login cannot be processed.

Clearly would process pages locally, in the browser window itself.
