New WordPress Reader

I just noticed my WordPress reader changed:

Now I have to admit the sleek lines are interesting, as well as the tags being clearly shown and the fact it now displays all the pictures in a post by thumbnails, with a link to the full gallery:

However, I do not like the estimate time at all. Everyone reads at a different pace! What is up with that?? I feel really slow now…
I truly miss the X words left.

What do you think of these changes?
