We use a browser extension called “Readability.” It reduces eyestrain (which in my case helps with mal de mer), reduces printer color ink usage, and has room for improvement. Who doesn’t? To quote the developer:
“Readability is a new Firefox add-on that makes reading web pages simpler and more enjoyable. The system strips the superfluous information and shows the main content in a single column of easy-to-read text. It is also a precious tool for printing the web pages in less.”
Versions for other browsers are or appear to be available. The extensions are an experiment of Arc90.com
It works wonders on ad-sodden, graphics-jammed News Feeds. Sometimes it works very well to select a printable version of the page and then apply Readability. One can also employ the extension, print to pdf, and then merge the pdfs, and then convert (as necessary) to e-book format.
Below is a screen shot of this post with and without Readability.
