Do you use Readability?
Though I've referenced the free program a number of times, I don't recall anyone ever saying they use it. I figure that either everyone uses it, and it's so common that it doesn't require a comment, or that they've never tried it.
With so many websites opening up with ads and pictures at the top of the page, often the article you are trying to read goes into a narrow column with many chances for inadvertent clicks. Add to that, the likelyhood that the letter size may be small (especially for old eyes), and that the article may run into 2,3,4 or more pages... and reading articles becomes a chore.
So enter readability... click to open and click again to save or "read now",
and you have a clear page, with no ads... your choice of letter styles, column width, letter size... and a color background that you choose... and you have easy reading. (Hint) click the webpage "print" link first, to avoid multi pages...
Just a one time set up for those choices.
Other opinions welcome...
