    For those using the beta, it seems like the Reader option in Safari would be a huge benefit for the iPhone. So many sites are so cluttered that it's impossible to zoom in accurately onto the story you're trying to read.

    How well does it work? Anyone care to post screenshots?

    Thanks,

    It's pretty dope. I like it. I never thought I'd actually use it because I normally have no problem reading the page as is, but it really makes it clean and nice and much more like iBook style reading.

    It's cool.

    I've had it crash Safari a few times but in general it works pretty well.
    One thing though is that if the webpage is a news story with multiple pages the reader only converts the first page.
    Pretty sure that Jobs said it would cache the entire article.
    It puts in a link to the 2nd page but when you click it it reopens the full Safari so I don't know if that's a bug or just bad implementation.
