Nik Fletcher:

Yes, Safari does some smart stuff behind the scenes – on Lynch’s blog, his multi-page diatribe is brought into one paginated lightbox – and that eliminates ad impressions. But if Safari Reader eliminates the bullshit practice of publishers including disproportionately highly numbers of pages per article then you won’t hear any complaints from me. My own primary interest in reading online surprisingly goes beyond a headline. I take the time to read an article, and if Safari Reader makes reading much easier, then it’s the site’s fault for failing to make itself reasonably legible.

Spot On.
