Readability: The best way to long-read on the web

[tweetmeme]The web has become easier to navigate lately. Tumblr makes it easy to follow great reads, Instapaper and Read it Later makes it possible to catch up with reading material on the go. But there’s always that article on the web, that you want to read at that moment, but is filled with clutter and ads. And for that, let me introduce to you, Readability.

Plan what TeuxDeux right on the web

The single view gives you 7 days of the week—passed days in grey, today in red, and future days in black—along with a section at the bottom for unplanned tasks. It’s pretty much like a notebook on your screen really. You’re not bound by nitty gritty details like time or priority. As simple as the view may look, it’s...
