And Along Those Lines…

I’ve whined before about my dislike for visual clutter and advertising trying to capture my attention on the web and in the news papers. Well, here’s a nice little tool that won the New York Times Pogie Award for the Year’s Best Tech Ideas: Readability.

Set your preferences: pick a style, select the font size, and select the width of the margin. Drag their little bookmarklet onto your browser’s toolbar. Now, when you arrive at a webpage, click the bookmarklet to strip the page of everything except the text and related photographs in a plain, readable format without Times Square blaring in your face.

Nice.
