If you're like me, you read a lot of articles online. Also, if you're like me, you hate the annoying and distracting layouts that 99.9% of websites have these days. See, for example, this page:

I use a little bookmarklet called Readability to turn that monstrosity up there into this reading pleasure in one click:

Readability is cross platform and cross browser compatible.

Nice little trick, this will help not only my eyes, but also help prevent me from accidentally clicking an area of the screen where an advertisment is just about to load, causing strange new pages to open. I have an older PC, and that has happened to me on more than one occasion (once causing a nasty infection, unfortunately). Thanks for the info!

Also: That article is hilarious!
