There’s no doubt that distraction is a fierce enemy of productivity. While surfing the internet, you can easily get distracted by certain obtrusive elements such as Ads, social media widgets, drop-down menus and what not. Previously, we’ve featured various apps and browser extensions like InstaReadTranquility and  TidyRead that chop off pop ups, images, advertisement and other similar distracting elements from webpages in order to provide a clutter-free reading experience. Print Friendly & PDF, on the other hand, is a Google Chrome extension that focuses on trimming such distracting elements specifically for making the webpage print-friendly. It removes all the extra clutter from the webpage, allowing you to email it, convert it to PDF file, or take out a physical print on A4 or letter sized paper . More details after the jump. Print Friendly & PDF is fairly easy to use. After installation, you can click its URL bar icon to instantly optimize the currently open web page by removing all the aforementioned clutter. The overlay window that pops up allows you to specify the text size as well as remove certain images or text snippets from the document.
