Safari Reader Does Not Harm Ad-Funded Sites

This is why I believe the new Reader feature of Safari does not harm ad-funded web sites:

  1. The Reader button does not appear until the page is rendered, with ads.
  2. Users have little motivation to click the Reader button until they have seen some of the ads and until the page layout annoys them.
  3. The Reader-rendered article also lacks page navigation and other functionality.  A user that wants to further explore the site will need the original page.
