McReadability Repaired

McReadability is a bookmarklet which reflows the text of a web page into a multi-column format. I created it based on an earlier bookmarklet by the folks at Readability, which has since transformed into a more ambitious service. Along the way I updated McReadability to continue working without relying on Readability; in other words, the requisite stylesheets and scripts were all hosted here at

I forgot to transfer some of those files when I changed hosts, so the bookmarklet recently stopped working.

I restored the files this morning, so McReadability should be working again. Give it a try.

Incidentally, the bookmarklet is overdue for an update. Eventually I plan to remove more of the residual Readability features and present a simpler setup page.

Hi anoved,

I just switched from a 4:3 laptop to a 16:10 one, and was quite annoyed by all the empty space. Your bookmarklet fixes that wonderfully, so I’d just like to say thank you!
