Flatten The Web With This One-Click Bookmarklet

Flatten The Web With This One-Click Bookmarklet

If you like a flatter design everywhere, websites with 3D buttons and other layout elements can be annoying. This neat little bookmarklet by developer Adam Schwartz promises to flatten any web page.

Basically, the bookmarklet removes background images. “Websites need to define a good background colour behind their images, if they don’t, you might see some unexpected things,” Schwartz warns. And this has some unintended side effects, such as removing Twitter background images and making the YouTube subscribe button disappear. So try it out and see which websites it works on for you. It might make some less cluttered.

Head to the link below to get the bookmarklet and drag it to your bookmarks bar. Whenever you are on a website with 3D elements that feel like they’re getting in the way, click it and it will automatically flatten the page.
