    "Doesn't work on all web pages"

    October 6, 2008  |   By daveycc

    Version: PrintWhatYouLike.com

    Pros

    When it works its great! Print only what you like, get rid of ads and banners and sidebars. No risk, nothing to download. Just bookmark the site, hit the "try it" section and substitue your website address into the URL.

    Cons

    Now if it would work on all web pages, that would be great!

    Summary

    No risk, since there is nothing to download. Use it when you need it!

    "FABULOUS !!"

    September 28, 2008  |   By Echidna

    Version: PrintWhatYouLike.com

    Pros

    Very simple to use. Allows me to edit, then print only the wanted parts of a web page.
    I particularly like the fact that I can also enlarge the text, change the font etc.

    Cons

    I have found no Cons.

    Summary

    The easiest way to use the programme is to save the PrintWhatYouLike Bookmarklet to your Bookmarks, then when you are on the web page you wish to edit and print - just one left click on this bookmarklet will place the programme ready to use on the left side of the target web page.

    "Excellent!"

    September 27, 2008  |   By Omachka

    Version: PrintWhatYouLike.com

    Pros

    Extremely easy to use. No program to download and install. Saves paper, ink and squinting at tiny print.

    Cons

    Absolutely none

    Summary

    This little script is exactly what I've been looking for. I print a lot of articles to share with friends and also a lot of recipes for myself to use in the kitchen. It is so much nicer not to have to print up all the extra junk that I don't need. I can make the print larger for easier reading (which is perfect for the recipes) and not have to skip around looking for where the advertising stops and the article begins. Thank you so much for this great utility.

    "A few more details.."

    Version: PrintWhatYouLike.com

    Pros

    I wrote it, so I think its great =)

    Cons

    why does cnet force me to enter something here?

    Summary

    Just to clairify, PrintWhatYouLike is a web application. There is nothing to download- everything runs in your browser. To use PrintWhatYouLike, copy the url (the http://www... address) of a page you wish to print, paste it into the 'Enter a url to start' box on printwhatyoulike.com, and hit start. A new page will appear containing your original page, plus a toolbar. With the toolbar you can reformat the page until it looks good enough to be print. There is a great screencast of printwhatyoulike.com in action here: http://demogirl.com/2008/09/24/print-only-the-content-you-want-with-printwhatyoulike/

    "And I download this how...?"

    September 27, 2008  |   By BookieMD

    Version: PrintWhatYouLike.com

    Pros

    Like the concept and the demo worked

    Cons

    Frustrated trying to get it!

    Summary

    Can't find a download link. Not only is it "not intuitive" as another reviewer wrote - it is not visible to me.

    Updated on Sep 27, 2008

    The comment from jonathan_prwl clarifies that this is not a downloadable utility. Still mulling the convenience of leaving the site I wish to print and go to another site in order to customize printing...

    Pros

    The "test me" worked wonderfully; The ability to change type & font size to printer extremely valuable

    Cons

    Summary

    Version: PrintWhatYouLike.com

    Pros

    Does what it says. Simple to use.

    Cons

    Cannot work out how to apply the bookmarklet facility so that I can launch it from within a page I wish to edit.

    Summary

    Would be five stars if slightly more friendly towards the non-expert user.
