If you're annoyed by short articles spread over multiple Web pages, Firefox add-on PageZipper will "zip" them into one seamless experience. It will automatically load the next page in a series of links, right below the existing page. It's almost like you have a second tab open, right below the screen you're viewing.
It's also polite to publishers: it doesn't cut out whatever ad system they've set up. The ads, like the content you want to see, load in full below the first page. PageZipper takes a step and a click out of the reading process for users, and that's simplification without any loose ends.
