Sometimes you want to print an article on a Web site without all the gobbledygook such as ads, extraneous links and other fiddly bits that can gum up a page. Use printwhatyoulike.com, to select exactly what you want to print — and nothing else — to make clear, readable pages without the mess.
But something that is a bit more of a mess, especially if you’re used to pointing and clicking your way around the Internet is dontclick.it. Yes, it’s an interesting concept that the Institute for Interactive Research (whatever that is) puts out there: Learn to maneuver through a Web site without clicking on anything. It’s a little annoying. And if you do click (for example, to innocently copy and paste some information), you get a charming pop-up asking if it was an accident.
And last, behold, the carrot. It has an ancient lineage, medicinal uses, a snazzy orange color and its own museum and Web site. Visit carrotmuseum.co.uk to learn a little something of the venerable vegetable.
