Safari's Reader function in Lion

I upgraded to Lion on my MacBook Air last week and I'm using Safari in full screen mode. One of the side-effects of this is that many text based sites are too wide for comfortable reading.

Clicking "Reader" in the address bar (or command-shift-R) drops a shadow across the page and opens an overlay containing the core text of the page minus annoying ads and other visual distractions. Really nice.

The reader feature was introduced with Safari 5 as part of Snow Leopard but it wasn't until I started living in full-screen mode that the utility of this feature presented itself.
