Most articles are surrounded by advertisements, navigational links, and other kruft (Example ). Most magazines are smart enough to have a "printer friendly" link somewhere. Usually these versions are much more online friendly too (Example).
Anyone want to write a Greasemonkey script that'll automagically follow the first "print me" link found on a page and then cancel any potential printer dialog that appears? Also, it'd be nice to have it append a small floating <div> on the print version page with a back link to the bypassed regular article view.
