Additional tips & tools

  • Readability - Browser bookmarklet that turns a cluttered busy web page into an oasis of calm. Strips out all the busy junk and displays the text only in your own customized format.
  • ReadItLater Adds a ReadItLater bookmarklet to your toolbar. Find something you want to read, don't have time? Click ReadItLater and come back to it. Apps for many mobile devices. Very similar tool: Instapaper
  • kwout - Handy way to clip a bit of a web page for display on another web page, wiki or blog.  Takes a screen shot of the area you select and gives you code to embed that image on your page.
  • PDFmyURL - Turns the current web page into a PDF file for sharing or printing.
  • Awesome Screenshot -  From Diigo, a free addon for Firefox that takes screenshots and lets you crop and do simple editing. 
  • CaptureFox - Free Firefox screencasting tool captures whatever is happening on your screen. Can also add audio.
