Today’s freeware pick put us in a pickle. How to pick one when a site offers you two for the price of none? And because last week we got razzed for our long diatribes we’re going to show you we can be concise and brief. Really. And since we have two freeware picks, you’re breathing easier, aren’t you? I thought so. And you’re holding your breath wondering if I’m going to really keep my promise and be taciturn. Well I’m going to gift you the gift of brevity. I proceed with alacrity.
PrintWhatYouLike is a bookmarklet that you drag from a Web page into you browser’s bookmarks’ toolbar. It supports IE7, IE8, IE9, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Chrome. It works on any version of Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. I imagine it works on Mac too, but EB’s not around and I don’t have a Mac. I want one for Christmas. If you’re generous, send me one. If not, oh well – keep reading.
PrintWhatYouLike lets you print only the parts of a Web page you want to print. This save you paper and ink and embarrassment when you show you wife a print-out of a Web page and it has ads on it with scantily clad women on it – all younger than you wife. And wife don’t be so smug. It could also save you embarrassment when you show your husband a print-out of a Web page that has scantily clad men on it all shirtless and tan with water running down their shiny chests. Just so you know I know how you girl’s think. I’m TC and I know EB so that’s where I got my education.
Yes I’m rambling but not for long.
After you’ve dragged the PrintWhatYouLike bookmarklet to your browser’s bookmarks’ toolbar, you’re in business. When you come to a page you want to print just click on PrintWhatYouLike in your browser’s toolbar and you’ll see PrintWhatYouLike dialog on the left side of your browser windows. See?

In the interest of brevity and good will, we’re going to let the developers’ tell you about PageZipper. They’re very concise and you won’t be able to yell at me for rambling. It’s a win-win for me and for you! Yay!
“PageZipper – Life’s too short to spend clicking “Next” — Ever read one of those top ten lists or photo galleries where every item is on a different page? You spend more time clicking “Next” and waiting than actually reading anything. PageZipper is a free bookmarklet which automatically merges all the “Next” pages into one, so you can skip directly to the stuff you want.”
Want to know more about PageZipper? I thought so You can read more and get the Page Zipper bookmarklet here.
Send me that Mac! I did well!
