Just the text, Ma’am

“Page minimizers” are web services that take a rich media web page and strip out cluttericious layouts and graphics, yielding a faster-loading text-only page.  For users with attention issues, this may be as good as it gets; the resulting pages may be more screen reader friendly as well, although they omit the alt text along with the image.  This new page minimizer, IYHY, got a good review from Lifehacker, which is as good as it gets for those of us with attention surplus disorder.

  1. I just tested the device. For pages in english or a similar “simple” language it might be fine. But for German pages it’s not as useful since it can’t handle some letters like Ü or Ö.
