Thanks to coffeeem, I have discovered Readability, which is a handy little toolbar widget that allows you to, with the click of a button, render text content into a size, font and margin-setting that you find comfortable to read. I don’t know when I became a cranky internet fogey (actually, anybody who’s been online as long as I have–19 years and counting (and yes, I know, half my friends have been on YEARS longer than that)–is one by definition), but I like this.

Also, I hate Flash-based websites. There. I’ve said it. Take that!
