Printer friendly pages in the manner you like :D
Features
click2zap panel fixed to the top right of the window.
as you rollover elements, they are highlighted with a yellow background.
click the highlighted element to remove it.
click undo to replace elements (unlimited).
disable allows links to work (though you can always right-click a link)
use the print link on the click2zap panel to hide the panel and print.

IE plugins for VIEW IN (other browsers)
When developing websites... checking the layout and visual appeal of the site in multiple browsers is a necessary evil. Copying the URL in the IE, firing off a Mozilla or FireFox session and then pasting in the URL is an annoyance when done occasionally. When its done a number of times in quick succession it can become a major pain.

Below is a link offering plugins that add functionality to IE that permits right- click invocation of a different browser.

View in Lynx
View in Avant
View in FireFox
View in Mozilla
View in Opera

http://del.icio.us/

Handy ~very handy~ for sharing links and learning from others links
» keep

your favorite websites, music, books, and more in a place where you can always find them.
» share

your favorites with family, friends, and colleagues.
» discover

new and interesting things by browsing popular & related items.
Sharind and learning, I really like those two words...
Nevertheless, still a sad day today.

Cheers
