Safari Reader

I'm giving Safari 5 a shot as my default browser, and I have to say, the new "reader" functionality is interesting. IT's also going to infuriate a lot of media people. Consider a typical article in the NYTImes, without using reader (but note the icon in the address field):

And now consider the page in the reader view:

Ads and graphics gone, crisp, clear text left to read. I like it - but I suspect that website that rely heavily on ads won't. Still -it's nothing that couldn't be done with client side Javascript added via something like Greasemonkey.
