Print Specific Elements from Webpage with PrintWhatYouLike Bookmarklet [tips]


Many elements in a webpage that are not necessary or important for printing needs, such as ads, buttons, menu, header, and footer. The most important thing is the main content isn’t it? You don’t have to install software (I called it bloatware) from printer vendor to do such thing. Even you don’t have to install anything. Just prepare your favorite browser, in this case I use Google Chrome.
