I'm passing along a gift that's turned out to be one of my favorites. If you do a lot of reading on the web, this freeware is most definitely for you.
Just take the few seconds it takes to customize the Readability bookmark and drag it to your toolbar.
Trust me on this.
Now, check out a text-dense page, like say...this article from the Financial Times' site; then click the Readability button on your toolbar.
Thank me later (i.e., after you finish reading, by posting a comment!) :)
Thanks lab wizards at Arc90!
