Rdd.me Combines Readability and URL Shortening in One

By Jason Fitzpatrick on April 26th, 2011

Readability–the web browser add-on that formats web sites for easy reading–has rolled out a new service that combines URL shortening and Readabillity reformatting. Now you can share cleanly formatted articles without the recipient even using Readability.

Plug in the URL, click Shorten & Read, and then either read it yourself or share it with a friend. Anyone who follows the link will enjoy the clean formatting of the Readability browser add-on without having to actually install it. In the above example we formatted our Kindle jailbreak article with great results. You can read the original article here and the Rdd.me version here.
