Increasingly, professional learning occurs through online journals, blogs, and educational websites. But reading articles on a computer screen can be challenging, especially if you’re trying to read deeply rather than simply skim. Between the back-lit screen, small fonts, and the distraction of ads and links, it becomes difficult to focus on the content.
While there are many services and apps you can use to declutter your screen, here are two extensions you can install from the Chrome Store and start using right away.
Readability is available as a Chrome extension and as an iOS app, making it simple to save online articles to a reading list and then access clean, easy-to-read versions synched to your computer, tablet or smartphone.
If you are an Evernote user, Clearly is another Chrome extension that not only provides a streamlined visual experience but also makes it easy to save articles to Evernote.
