  1. Quite useful indeed. However, I’m still looking for a tool to make text that spans across the entire page readable (yes, I’m looking at you, Wikipedia). A tool to fix columns by pixels would be super.

    And don’t give me the “just resize your browser” nonsense, I like maximized windows and not the window clutter you see sometimes (yes, I’m looking at you, Mac OS).

  2. I like my justified text on a grid/grid inspired site. But I see your point, because I justify text on my blog and while I write I have to think about long strings and stuff. I live though πŸ˜‰

  3. Nic – You’re looking at a lot of people πŸ™‚

    Connor – When I first started web design I liked it too, from a visual point of view, but as I slowly learnt it’s not so good from a readability one. Your site isn’t too bad but there have been sites I’ve visited where I wonder what went through the designers head when they implemented the text that way. I sometimes find it all rather frustrating and this little bookmarklet removes that frustration πŸ™‚

  4. Ah, that takes me back to my webdesign days. I was once *forced*, by the client, to justify text under small images of a website that i’d designed. We’re talking a sentence of text under a small image, maybe 200 pixels wide. Then you can talk about illegible text!
