Making Medium posts readable
The Medium post, regardless of its content, is defined by several visual characteristics:
- Large, pretty stock images that add little to no value to the post itself.
- A giant sticky header
- A giant sticky footer
- Some garish popup suggesting you join
Its awful. I wouldn't mind if it weren't so popular (again, at least for the time being).
Here it is in slightly pretty-printed format.
Why not make this a browser extension? I might. But for now having access to a button to kill every terrible thing suffices. Once having to remember the bookmark button starts annoying me enough I'll create an extension in anger.
