Bookmarklet to Remove CSS

David Dorward offers a JavaScript bookmark that, when triggered, will disable the stylesheet definitions for the web page you’re viewing. This may help you evaluate the accessibility of a given page, and also help better understand what Googlebot sees. To get this to work, just drag & drop the link that says “Remove CSS” onto your bookmarks bar. (On that note, I wonder if Google ever tried taking browser rendering snapshots of web pages to OCR them, as it could offer additional data points... like images containing text – but no alt text–, or potential connections between the importance of a text and its positioning on the page.)
