I recently discovered the Aardvark Firefox extension and have found it quite helpful for printing web sites that don’t already offer “printer friendly” versions. Aardvark lets you remove page elements like navigation bars or ads. Whether you’re printing out a longer article or just trying to read something online, this is really a helpful tool.
To demonstrate this extension, I’ve made my first screencast with Camtasia Studio. I’m still trying to figure out the best combination of image/sound quality versus file size. I’ve published a couple different combinations to try:
- Aardvark Firefox Extension Screencast, Flash format (20 MB)
- Aardvark Firefox Extension Screencast, Windows Media format (3 MB)
Update 2006-08-16: I re-created the Flash version to improve the audio. File size is up a little, now 20MB, but the screencast sounds much better now.
