How to vastly improve your internet reading experience

Head over and try out Readability. It's wonderful. For any online article, news story, blog post, etc, it can

  • Remove annoying clutter (ads and such)
  • Increase font size the way you want it
  • Change the text to your preferred font
  • Adjust the margins to give you a comfortable column width

And best of all, it takes about 3 seconds to get going with it. All you have to do is go to the website, choose 3 settings, and then drag the bookmarklet. For all subsequent online reading simply click on the link on your toolbar and happy reading!

That's useful. Speaking of reading online, I'm finding Google Reader is a very good way to follow multiple blogs w/o visiting every one of them whenever you want to read something. It flags entries you haven't read for you.
