There are websites that, althought with an interesting content, I hate visiting due to the horrible layout and the sheer volume of banners and advertising. I tended to avoid these in the past and lose interesting articles and discussions but fortunately there is a solution now thanks to a company called arc90 and a small tool/bookmarklet called Readability.

All you need to do to set it up is visit the main Readability page, select your settings and drag the bookmarklet to your browser toolbar.

While browsing normally, if you come across an “irritating” website, just click on the Readability button in your toolbar and you will get the main text on that page formatted as you chose at the beginning.
