"Doesn't work on all web pages"

October 06, 2008  |  By daveycc

 |  Version: Not Found

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: Not Found

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: Not Found

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.

Pros

I wrote it, so I think its great =)

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: Not Found

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...

Does what it says. Simple to use.
