View clutter-free web pages with TidyRead, Safari Reader

Safari Reader is a great new feature introduced in Safari v5 that removes annoying ads and other visual distractions from online articles. I recently found that there are other bookmarklets & add-ons like TidyRead that can do the same job as Safari Reader in other browsers as well.

A typical page on NY Times


How the same page looks with TidyRead.  

I liked the way TidyRead automates the "next page". When scrolling near the end of the page, TidyRead detects and renders the next page, so you need not to click the next page anymore.

The image above (click to enlarge) shows how TidyRead automatically displays the content of the consecutive page of a 3-part article

Looking at Safari Reader, it seems when browser add-ons grow up, they become native features in future browser versions.
