Isn't the scrollbar to the right of most articles a similar function?

Yeah, I've never liked these progress bars—and unfortunately, I'm seeing them all over the place. They're wasted space for functionality the browser provides me already.

Not if two thirds of the length of the page is taken up by comments.

Ads and ridiculously long sidebar

It works perfectly if you switch to reader-mode.

No scrollbar on mobile though
