Mercury Reader - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mercury-reader/oknpjjbmpnndlpmnhmekjpocelpnlfdi?hl=en - OR - https://mercury.postlight.com/ - is a Chrome extension that removes sidebar content from articles that you view in your Chrome web browser.
Mercury Reader will hide...
- banner ads,
- suggested "related" articles, and
- anything else that is not a part of the primary article on the page you are viewing.
When educators and/or learners use Mercury Reader to print an article, all of the sidebar content is removed thereby saving them paper and ink.
"Mercury Reader is more than just a tool for hiding sidebar content from a page."
It can also be used to adjust the font size and colour contrast of a page and Kindle users can send a page directly from Mercury Reader to their Kindles.
