Hi.  Have you tried the 'simplified article' option in Clipper?  It should be the same as Clearly.  What version of Clipper do you have,  and what OS/ device are you running?  In Win10 and highlighting a paragraph in Clearly,  I still have Evernote web clipper in the right-click menu.

I'm running OS X El Capitan.  Clipper version 6.10.3 (d02be41/1.1.0.926).  I can't find the Clearly version in its options.  Where is it listed?

Good question - Clearly in Windows was at 10.2.1 in 2015 before it was withdrawn :(  Wouldn't know where to look on a Mac.  The Clipper version shows up in my options - Windows Firefox.  Maybe one of the Mac users around here can comment further...

And when I click on Clearly and go to the Chrome extension page it isn't there!

Ah, here's why:

So I'm supposed to use Simplified Article option in Clipper?  Hmmm.  I thought that was for clipping a simplified article, not for mere viewing!

Well,  kinda - instead of highlighting and copying selected text you could clip the whole page and delete anything you don't need,  or just abort the clip if the content turns out not to be interesting...

If you are purely looking to read content more easily,  there were various discussions when the app was discontinued...

This app developer - http://readable.tastefulwords.com/ - was taken over by Evernote to create Clearly,  but the original bookmarklet app apparently still survives.

and see http://www.controlaltachieve.com/2016/01/clearly-alternatives.html

And https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/enjoy-reading/?src=api 

(Not sure how Mac-friendly any of those are though...)

Incidentally -  if the simplified website copy is solely what interests you,  try a read-it-later website called Instapaper - https://www.instapaper.com/
