When I print a web page, I don’t want the menus, ads, etc. I only want a clean simplified copy to print. Firefox, my second browser of choice, gives you such an option.
I wrote about this before here: How To Clean Up Mashed Up Prints
The option is still there in Firefox but the interface has changed slightly. You might notice when you go to print something in Firefox, the print preview is set up more as in Chrome-based browsers.
On the right-hand side of the preview, click on “More settings”…
…and then scroll down to the “Format” section and click on the button in front of the word “Simplified”. The changes in the preview should be immediate. Then click on “Print“.
In Opera, they don’t give you a direct “simplify” option but they do offer a “Reader mode” that simplifies the outlook of the page. You can then print it from reader mode.
