These days, websites and blogs are using so many advertisements that it becomes difficult to locate and read the content or even print it for offline reading. There are many tools available which can help you get the printer friendly image of any web page but most of them requires you install third party software or pay to use the service.
Today, we came across an excellent online tool, PrintFriendly which can help users generate a printer friendly version of a web page, without any advertisements or sponsorship links. Using the service is really simple and straightforward. All you have to do is type the link you want to convert and click on Print Preview button.
The time it takes to convert the web page depends on the length of the content and other things (e.g ads, scripts etc) that are running on the website. Once converted, it will give you option either to save it as a PDF file on your PC so that you can read it offline or print it right away. Users can even share it with other people as well via email.
If you want, you can even reduce the font size and prevent images from loading as well so that you can read the articles without any distraction.
In conclusion, I must say that PrintFriendly is a must try if you want to read online content without any ads or distractions.
