Readability

Ever get sick of bouncing, flashing, talking bla bla bla ads and links all over the edge of the web page you're reading? Me too. A couple of months ago David Pogue wrote about this and I failed to take the advice and check it out, until today when he mentioned it again in his what I bought column.

Here's what I've been missing:

Cyclingnews.com; a cornicopia of advertising surrounding every article you read.
After clicking the installed Readability 'bookmarklet' I installed in Firefox. And not only do you nuke the superfluous ads, you can specify how you'd like it reformatted for maximum, well, readability. Get it here, it's easy and almost instantaneous.
