The free Readability™ tool, I like.
If you have trouble reading articles on the web cause the fonts too small. or the page doesn't fit on your screen, or some goof used a strange background,or there's so many ads that you can't find the words; this really works. Just drag to the toolbar and you are in business. Click the button and all articles will look the same in the style of your choice. I really like this.
