IYHY Strips Websites Down For Fast Text Browsing

IYHY is a web-based service that acts as a text-only proxy, stripping down websites for faster load times. Like previously reviewed page minimisersBareSite and Finch, IYHY returns just the basic text of the site you plug into it. With Lifehacker.com and and news.google.com as our test sites, though, IYHY beat the two previous sites hands down for clarity and condensation. Formatting is cleaner, no images were mistakenly thrown back into the mix, comments were still visible, and with IYHY there were no annoying [IMAGE] tags scattered throughout the stripped content. For mobile browsing or surreptitious reading at the office, IYHY does a suberb job stripping all non-text elements from a site. There is no login required for the basic proxy service, but with a free account you can save your most frequently accessed sites to save some time—and your thumbs.
