Make more web content readable with Readability

Ever find yourself reluctant to read stuff you really would like to read if it wasn’t on a site whose visual design is not compatible with your eyes? I do.

There’s always the option of simply turning CSS off, but that doesn’t always look so good. Another option is to try the Readability bookmarklet, which tries to remove everything but the main content of the page you are viewing. It also lets you choose from a few different colour combinations, font sizes and line lengths.

The bookmarklet isn’t perfect – it doesn’t work on all sites and sometimes hides a bit too much content, but I like the concept.
