Readability, the bookmarklet that everyone loves (or hates) has just been updated. The main focus of this update is effectiveness.
With this release, Readability has gone from a respectable success rate of about 80%-ish to a success rate somewhere well north of 90%. Don’t hold us to this statistic. We’re not scientists. We just happen to work in a lab.
We’ve also added an often-requested “Reload Page” button in the footer in case you sorely miss all the noise Readability strips away.
How To Install
If you’re already using Readability and would like to install the new version, all you have to do is…nothing! Readability will automatically update. If you’re still new to Readability, you can install it by visiting the setup page.
Thanks to everyone for all the kind words on Readability. We’re glad it makes the Web more…readable. If any feisty little pages still slip through the cracks, feel free to post them in the comments below.
