Do Column layouts improve readability?
When text is displayed in newspaper columns the length of each line is much shorter. This is a great aid to readability. On the internet many people will skim read large blocks of text and this can have the unfortunate effect that they miss important points buried in a long paragraph.

(CSS 3) Browser Support: IE 10, Opera. Use the equivalent -webkit-column-span for Safari and Chrome.
