Print What You Like - website helps you save paper

Posted by ClifNotes, Feb 2009, permalink Web Service


Thanks to Robert. He wrote in with a great tip that may save me and many of you some paper and some money.


Letter from Robert W:

Hi Clif,


Recently, I shared information about the Firefox addon Aardvark that allowed a user to clean-up a webpage before it is printed or sent. I love the addon and I love using Firefox but what if I am on another PC that does not have Firefox?


There is a website titled Print What You Like which will allow most browsers a chance to clean-up a webpage before you print. About a quarter of the way down the http://www.printwhatyoulike.com main page you will see the graphic that says "Enter a URL and press start".


A page will display with the Print What You Like tool bar to the left and the webpage you entered to the right. As you navigate through the webpage various elements of the page will appear outlined in red. You can use the Print What You Like buttons on the left to change the page or right-click inside the red outline and use the menu that is displayed.


Quote from the website

Save Money. Save the Environment.

Ever print a web page only to find your printout is full of ads, empty space and other junk you don't want?


PrintWhatYouLike is a free web page editor that gives you control of how webpages look when printed.
