I tried tricking it into letting me set it to 900 but it won't. As for a permanent ...

I haven't seen any web application that can extract a thread into a single page. I do know that this forum provides a mobile version. Which when viewed on the desktop, reduces the clutter allowing for a faster read. You can access the mobile version by clicking the mobile button on the bottom of the page.

They are essentially online hard disks which you can access anywhere from the web and support ePub, PDF and most other files. Of course since it's just a way store the books, your device still needs the native functionality to read them.
