Make Reading the Web Easier

I posted the tweet above last night and until the major browsers include a distraction free reading mode here are a couple of good options in the meantime.

A quick view of why I love these tools:

Readability

Readability has been around the longest of these 2 and they do an outstanding job of cleaning up a page for faster reading. Visit their bookmarklet page and drag it to your bookmarks bar. They offer a paid version that does other stuff but you’ll find the Free tool very handy.

Evernote Clearly

My beloved Evernote has been on a development frenzy of late and one of the products they produced is Evernote Clearly. The end result is much the same but they do allow you to customize the font and colors. The only downside is that it’s a browser addon that requires install but well worth it especially if your an Evernote user already. Did I leave out your favorite tool?
