    How to get Readability.
    Step 1: Go to this site https://www.readability.com/bookmarklets
    Step 2: Drag the "Read Now Icon" to your bookmark manager
    Step 3: I hope this helps my fellow readers. Enjoy :)

    How to get it to work:
    Step 1: go to a site
    Step 2: click the bookmark ( if you didn't change its name it should be "Read Now" )
    Step 3: enjoy

    What this basically do is it cleans up everything and it would only show what you are reading. No more annoying ads, No more chats, just a plain screen with your novel or w/e you use it on.

    This one is for the Firefox users :)

    Big Thanks to: Kvothe Kingkiller

    a Firefox add-on for reading novels.

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/reader/
    My settings for it are. [​IMG]

    Looks like this [​IMG]

    Also you might want to use *BYM* another Firefox add-on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/blank-your-monitor-easy-readin/
    I use it for when I don't want to blind myself after using Reader and return to the main site.

    I also use Distill Web Monitor to alert me when novels on my Reading List update.
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/alertbox/
    I have it set to check every 3 minutes and it gives me a little bell ring when new chapters are released.

    >_> uh, wouldn't the translator lose out on ad revenue?

    I don't think the translator would lose their ad revenue, as the reader still need to open up the normal page first, then click on the bookmark.

    So nice, chrome has nothing so I had to waste a few days to find this after what happened to "Clearly".

    What browser are you using?

    This is nice. Some of the sites aren't formatted that well.
    I personally am fine with most ads, but there's a few sites I frequent that uses video ads and it screws up my mobile bandwidth @_@
    Plus ironically @Ravi's example, shiroyukineko, recently got swamped by triple video ad a page (video ad on top, video ad on bottom, ad popping up from side that blocks half the mobile screen and it will disappear after countdown finished, and pop up again 2 seconds later)

    How do these play in mobile?
    I haven't the need yet, has anyone been fooling around with it in mobile?

    sadly when im using mobile I use safari and it already has a reader view already, if i don't have a wifi I use an app that downloads the page and i just scroll and read it like that.

    I'm sure readability has a mobile version but im not sure how androids or other's use it. ( I use a first generation ipad mini when im outside and desktop when im home )

    sorry for necroing, but relevant.
    "Just read" works wonders for Chrome
