Printliminator - Save Ink and Save Paper

Printliminator is a handy little bookmarklet for Firefox (update: it also works in Chrome and Safari) that I just learned about from Steve Dembo. Printliminator allows you to highlight a webpage and select only the elements which you wish to print. You can install Printliminator in seconds by just clicking and dragging it into your browser's toolbar.

Watch the video below to learn more about Printliminator.

Applications for Education
If you've ever found an online article that you wanted to print for classroom use, you know that ads inserted into the text or excessively large headers can result in using more ink and paper than necessary. Printliminator allows you to remove those unnecessary elements and print just the text thereby saving your school paper and ink costs.

Save Paper and Save Ink, Use PrintFriendly

If you have ever wanted to print an article from a blog or a website, but wish you could do it without printing all of the ads and widgets in the side columns, you should take a look at PrintFriendly. PrintFriendly strips away all of the ads and side bar content allowing you to print only the article on the page. There are two ways to use PrintFriendly. You can copy and paste an article's url into the PrintFriendly homepage or use the PrintFriendly bookmarklet. I tried it both ways and much prefer using the bookmarklet as it doesn't require any toggling between browser tabs or windows. Below you will see two screen shots of an article from my blog.
