Reading Scribd Documents on Kindle 3

I have yet to purchase a Kindle 3 and I was wondering,

how does Scribd.com appear when using the web browser?

I heard that Scribd.com has moved to HTML5 and thus would be readable on most web browsers, can someone try out this document on their Kindle 3?

http://www.scribd.com/doc/37878395/Aug-Sept-Comparison

or any other document

Thanks

I looked at it using my PC browser. It looked like crap even in a PC browser. No way that website will be legible on a K3. There is way too much advertising on it so it would take a long time to load and there is way too much wasted space due to the advertising to be useful on a K3. I doubt even a K DX would work with that kind of website.

Here are the screenshots I took. As I suspected it came our unreadable and too over 4 minutes to load. The K3 is not an iPad and the browser is not designed to compete with an iPad. The K3 is an ebook reader.
