Every once in a great while, I stumble across something online that’s free, useful, and takes about two seconds to install. The folks at Arc90 Lab have designed something that’s exactly that – a bookmarklet that gets rid of anything on any webpage that isn’t text or pictures, leaving you with a clean, easy-to-read screen.
It’s called Readability, and here’s how it works: Choose a style, size, and margin width, then drag the link to your browser’s tool bar. Visit any website and click “Readability” in your toolbar to get a nice, uncluttered view. You can also reload to the original page, print, or email the clean version. It’s like having any content on the web available in e-reader form.
