The web is now much more Readable!

   You can make this text,      look like this!

Example text from Aftonbladet Jan 15, 2010

Do you spend a lot of time reading text from the web?  I mean slightly longer texts such as newspaper articles, scientific texts, books, long instructions, or course material. If so you may want to check out the Readability tool, which removes all clutter and leaves only text!
It all works via the web, and there is nothing to download.  You follow the link to Readability, make a few basic choices about layout and colouring using the example text, drag a bookmarklet onto your bookmarks bar, and hey Presto you are ready to go.

By the way, this tool can be very useful not only for reading but also for printing.
