If the article is any good, I am likely to want to print it to read in more
detail or give to a friend or boss. Some, like Dev Head
<http://www.zdnet.com/devhead/> provide a print feature BUT IT ONLY DOES 1
PAGE OF THE ARTICLE instead of combining the pages into a single file to
print all at once.
Since they do not even consider their own articles worthy of being printed,
then why should I spend too much time reading them?
I do not mind the page-by-page navigation that much when I am reading it
online, but I really gotta have a single printable version of the whole
The forgotten task on the web: printing.
