The New Readability: Distraction-Free Reading Without the Guilt

Arc90s Readability bookmarklet has long been a staple of my online experience. Once installed, the Readability bookmarklet allows you to see a beautifully typeset, pure text view of any article you are looking at. The service wipes away all the distractions from the site – but for publishers, that can also make it harder to monetize traffic. Today, Arc90 launched a new version of Readability that goes far beyond its earliest incarnation. This new version introduces Instapaper-like reading lists and a micropayment system that pays publishers based on how often its users used the tool on their sites.
