Safari 5 has been out for days and Stack Overflow still doesn't support its reader mode.

Why is that?

Wouldn't this require SO using HTML5 elements which some browsers won't support? Unless I misunderstand, Safari's reader works against <article> elements. – Nick Craver Jun 10 '10 at 22:18
Some details on why it might not work at stackoverflow.com/questions/2999600/… (And really, how would Reader be better than the current layout?) – Arjan Jun 10 '10 at 22:20
+1 Thanks for letting me know that Safari 5 is out! – waiwai933 Jun 10 '10 at 22:25

Given the importance of voting, I think the current layout suits the sites better.

Voting was fun for the first year, but I'm tired of expressing my opinion. The StackOverflow engine should have figured out what I like and dislike by now and do my voting for me. – Frank A. Krueger Jun 11 '10 at 0:25
@Frank A. Krueger: And get me a pony, too. Although SO looks like magic sometimes, it's still not AI, not by a long shot. – Piskvor Sep 26 '10 at 19:46

Reader mode isn't something sites are supposed to actively support; if nothing else it's the other way round. Read more.
