Make Readable Bookmarklet

Do you ever view the printer friendly format of a web page to get rid of the ads and clutter, just to suffer a long, wide, unstyled pain in the ass to read? I do at the New York Times, so I decided to act on it.

The Bookmarklet: Make readable

Drag that link to your bookmark/links toolbar, hit it when on an ugly page, and watch as the page is automagically made more readable. Your eyes will thank you.

Disclaimer: This does not work in Internet Explorer.

Disclaimer 2: This makes low-style pages like New York Times printer-friendly ones prettier, but will screw up more complex pages. A reload will bring it back to normal.
