Chrome for Android will only show you the text of a website if it detects a slow network. That is very helpful when you are on the subway losing your internet constantly but want to read an article, for example, and you only have 4 seconds until you lose your network signal again.
I must say this feature of Chrome is really fantastic. It happens multiple times in a day when network goes slow. Google is great at innovating things
