Remove ads in webmail.

One important productivity tip whether it be in the physical or virtual worlds is to avoid clutter. 

Ever notice how a cluttered desk or office space can cause stress? You may not realize it till you clean up and then realize, "Wow, I feel so much better now". Whether you consciously realize it or not, clutter distracts you in a variety of ways and none of them are good.

A week or so ago I introduced you to the web page decluttering tool, Clearly. Today, let's talk about another Chrome extension, Webmail Ad Blocker.

Concept is simple, this little baby removes the ad clutter from your GMail, Hotmail and Yahoo email screen. Below is a real life example from my Gmail earlier today with Webmail Ad Blocker off and then with it on. I've been using this for over a year and have not had any problems with it. 

Now you can stay focused on the task at hand. Less clutter. Less chance of being distracted by an ad and running off down a time-wasting rabbit-hole!

Web page reading tip: Evernote Clearly

Web page clutter messing with your reading and comprehension ability?

There's a great solution I'd like to point you to: Evernote Clearly.

I particularly use the Clearly extension when reading web pages from my comfy chair in front of my main TV. Sure it is a 52" TV, but I'm quite a long way from it for reading. Some pages are merely annoying to read from that distance and others are impossible. Clearly allows me to get at the content without bugging my eyes out of their sockets  to read too small print or having to wear or a welder's helmet to shield my eyes from the annoying, surrounding nonsense.

See it in action in this video.
