I'll add that the flipside is that publushers need revenues. I'm aware micropayments are making another go of it (David Brin is publishing an article shortly which I reviewed in draft). My thought is that that's actually the weong way to go and that what we need is superbundling, including possibly at the government level (an income-indexed content tax). Some asskicking in browser and web space to too shake out the cruft.
I may have to manually add "about:reader?url=" to the head of the navigation line. I'm taking to doing that by default.
A small number of sites revert to the default page, but few. NY Times isn't among them.
