Admit it, you do want to see those 15 plastic surgery disasters. But they don't make it easy, do they, all those ads that masquerade as forward backward buttons, dynamic resizing of the clickable areas, content mimicry -- pretty soon, they'll make you enter a captcha to find out that Kelly Clarkson gained some weight.

Well, this is intolerable. What we need is an automated way to defeat clickholes, by chasing down the list of content and creating nice summary articles that can be absorbed, ad and content free, at your leisure

       Micro$oft's new browser has that feature: you still have to download all the crap but, once the page is loaded, you can click on "reading mode" which reportedly (I haven't tried it yet) displays only the article.

       [FT], Safari's had that for a few years now, and you can get an equivalent result in any browser by using Readability (which Safari's feature was based on).
