    1. The Printliminator is a simple tool you can use to make websites print better. One click to activate, and then click to remove elements from the page, remove graphics, and apply better print styling.
      The Printliminator vs PrintFriendly opinions
      Almost everyone thinks The Printliminator is a great alternative to PrintFriendly.
      This is cool service and better than PrintFriendly which restricts content by copyright, which is bad.

      Discontinued

      CleanPrint seems to be discontinued at this time (June 18, 2018). The page to download/install the aplet loads slooowly and then doesn't work properly, and the company & contact phone numbers listed by FormatDynamics are "not in service at this time." Sad, because when CP was working it was good.
