The Readability Experiment lets you restyle web pages for better reading. They offer “Bookmarklets” that one can click to re-style a given webpage so that it is easier to read.
Ubiquity is an “intelligent” command-line and natural language parser for Firefox. Its hard to explain because of its ubiquitous features( everything from Twitter posts to Maps and email), so I’ll leave that to the excellent screencast on their site.
I thought it would be cool to have a Ubiquity command that uses the Readability project and fixes your web-based reading material. Turns out, its easy to have it, and the results are very satisfactory to me.
The screenshot shows how a cumbersome page can be viewed cleanly using Ubiquity.
Ubiquity can be downloaded from Mozilla Labs . Once Ubiquity is installed , Ctrl+Space (be default) opens the Ubiquity panel.
For an easier method to start using the Readability command , just visit this page , and in the bar where Firefox tells you it has found Ubiquity commands, click “Subscribe”.
You can manually add the command to Ubiquity as well. To install custom commands such as this one : type command-editor in Ubiquity, which will take you to your custom command editor page.
