Lifehacker Print Prettier Formats Articles for Better Printing [Downloads]

2 Set/09

Firefox with Greasemonkey/Stylish: If you print out articles here on Lifehacker, you’ve probably noticed that certain screen items print that just take up space or—even worse—block parts of the article. The Lifehacker Print Prettier user style can fix that.

Before you go any further, you’ll need to have installed either the Greasemonkey or Stylish Firefox extensions. Then head to the Lifehacker Print Prettier page to install said script. Userstyles lists options for Opera, Chrome, and IE7Pro users, but it’s only been tested with Firefox.

After installing the user style, the related articles at the top and right vanish when printing, along with some other screen elements that just don’t make sense when you’re trying to print out an article—saving you paper and precious ink. Unfortunately, Stylish doesn’t allow a way to restrict CSS changes to affect only the print view while at the same time restricting the URLs they apply to, so this is effectively a global style—again, only for when you’re printing a post. Fortunately, that means it should also work on our sibling sites like Gizmodo, io9, and the rest. Check out the before and after comparison shots to see what the changes look like (you can click each one if you want a closer look) .

Note: This is a script that I made based on feedback from Lifehacker readers. If you find anything that needs fixing, you can let me know about it via the forum or in the comments right here.
