HP Smart Web Printing

Smart Web Printing lets you take chunks of web pages and mix them up in a printable form. In my case this is great for the food blogs, which rarely have their recipes in a printable format. I just hi-lite the chunk that I want and I have a clean print without wasting pages on all the comments and ads. Another great use is for researching, where you want to pull small quotes or pictures into one source.

The only down side to Smart Web Printing is that it runs on Internet Explorer for Windows. I’m not a fan of Internet Explorer. I thought about naming this entry “I finally found a use for IE”. So I use this enough to live with that limitation. What I’d really love to see is a Firefox extension that does the same thing. If you know of any, drop me a comment. I’d really love to see this in my default browser.
