Readability formats pages for a quick read

This browser bookmarklet from Arc90 strips all but the main text out of any web page and re-formats its layout, size, and margins, creating a newspaper or novel-like page for easier text digestion. It is a very interesting and potentially useful tool for reading verbose web pages, and when it works, it seem to work well. However, many pages just don't cooperate. It appears they may be using a browser's built-in "accessibility" tools and as we know many pages are created in a very "inaccessible" way. Anyway, give it a try here.

Found at Lifehacker.
