Wordless Web Turns the Internet Into One Giant Picture Book

Remember the joys of sitting down with a giant picture book when you were younger? Of just flipping through the pages, staring at images, and not having to worry about all those words? Well that's exactly what the Wordless Web experiment is all about.

You just drag an icon from the site onto your browser's toolbar, and anytime you're visiting a site and find all its verbage is getting in the way of your enjoyment, you just hit the shortcut and all the words will magically disappear. And by 'magic' we mean special code that turns the site's background and all of its text white so it's invisible—perfect for those of you who are just stopping by for gizmo and gadget pron.
