10 There's a great extension for Firefox (and I'm sure equivalents exist for all
11 browsers supporting extensions) allowing you to cherry-pick and remove all
12 "dirty" content (advertisements, multimedia, silly CSS, etc.) before printing. I
13 have used [1] for quite a while now, and it's proving excellent. It also
14 supports saving to a PDF or HTML file, which is a nice-to-have considering I
15 prefer printing to a physical device via lpr.
17 There are quite a few other extensions which perform very similar functions,
18 although watch out for ones that send the site to an external service for
19 cherry-picking, such as [2].
