Have you ever printed something from your web browser only to end up with 20 pages instead of two? Whether a how-to, news article, or recipe, you’re likely to see ads fill up those printed pages. But with an extra click or two, you can print webpages without ads in Safari, Firefox, and Chrome on your Mac, here’s how.

As an alternative, you can install a Chrome extension for reader view. Here, we’ll show you both methods so you can enable reader mode in Chrome on your Mac.
