SENDtoREADER - a new, free tool for the Kindle.
I received a tweet that asked if I would say a few words about a new web-tool for the Kindle, SendToReader, similar to the popular Send to Kindle, a Chrome browser extension, but the creator of SendToReader says that this one can be used with any of several browsers (although Internet Explorer version is due next) and will keep the images along with the text, something much requested.
I don't have time to test it, so I'm not exactly recommending it, but it sounds promising and I'd like to know what some of you more intrepid explorers find.
It promises the following:
' SENDtoREADER is a simple web application that allows you to send any webpage to your Amazon Kindle Reader instantly.
This gives your Kindle the flexibility to be your work or leisure time companion with a simple click of the mouse. SENDtoREADER is a simple web application that allows you to send any webpage to your Amazon Kindle Reader instantly.
Our web app is extremely easy to use. It's just a bookmarklet (or favlet) which works well in all modern browsers including: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari and Opera. Version for Internet Explorer is coming soon. Once it's added to your favorites, you can start sending web pages to your Kindle with a single click. By default, Kindle is a book reader, but with SENDtoREADER you can also make it your personal Magazine.

Sounds worth a try, no ? Please report what you find. Thanks!
Note: (Be sure to see the earlier Send to Kindle via Chrome article for details on how to use the Kindle-specific email.)

UPDATE - Norti was the first to report in the Comments area:
' Accented international characters in titles ('őűóúíáé') - and in text, of course - and pictures are well preserved with this, so it's already better than any other other page-sending service out there ... those are likely to fail on accented titles). '
UPDATE2 - The Comments area feedback is extremely positive, with images coming through well, good general layout, and "a great feature: history of your sent articles (linked) in your account at sendtoreader.com with an option to resend." Thanks to phelcq and Elmo.
