There's so many websites out there with horrible designs that have pretty good articles. Problem is, if you're like me, you won't bother to read them because the site looks horrible, cluttered with ads, social widgets, and other junk, and sometimes the content area is barely readable.
My idea is this: Create a long list of awful looking news websites, then make a browser addon that automatically turns the website into something readable and distraction-free. Kind of like Safari's Reader feature, Readability, and similar addons, but automatic.
What good would this automatic addon do? Save people some headache, and get those news sites to rethink their website design. If your website is on the list then you know you're in trouble.
A really useless idea. You're welcome.
