!!! This doesn't work any more because all Gawker sites have changed to the new format.

Based on Lifehacker UK - Cleaned Up by moi, this style removes most of the content from Gawker blogs and restyles it into what I hope is a newspapery theme.
* I've also added some adblocking but I might have missed some ads.
* The layout is centered with the main content at 500px.
* Paragraph font has been changed to Georgia but the font stack is a bit crap so it will use Times if you don't have Georgia, and Times is quite ugly.
* I have removed all the metadata from posts (date, author, views etc.) and hidden the tags which overlay images such as #hivefive hidden until you hover
* The top bar (Lifehacker, Windows, Mac, Linux --- Login, Search) is also hidden until hover.
* All the hover stuff will only work in FF4 and this has only been tested in Linux.
* Haven't tested all Gawker blogs either: only Lifehacker, Gakwer and Gizmodo, but it should work okay.
