View Clutter-Free Webpages in Chrome and Iron for Smooth, Pleasant Reading

By Akemi Iwaya on March 25th, 2011

Are you tired of visiting webpages full of clutter where the content you want to see is totally lost within it? Now you can view those same webpages clutter-free with the Text Only, Please! extension for Chrome and Iron.

As you can see in our screenshot above, the article images are retained but all other website items are totally removed in order to provide a smooth, pleasant reading experience. There is even an option to create a PDF from the webpage if desired.

Using the extension is easy to do. To engage the “text-only” function right click on the desired link and select Open in text-only mode. The link will be opened in a new tab and you are ready for some terrific streamlined reading.

Update: The extension now comes with a convenient toolbar button and will soon implement a shortcut key that will reload the current tab in text only mode.
