Better GReader – Make Google Reader Better

Better GReaderThe folks over at Lifehacker have been up to it again with creating yet another cool extension for Firefox.

Firefox only: Google Reader is one of the best web-based feed readers out there, but it could stand a few adjustments. Greasemonkey scripters have come up with a few Google Reader user scripts that make some welcome GReader tweaks like maximizing the viewing area, skipping Google’s default subscribe mechanism, and adding keyboard shortcuts.

I downloaded it the minute I saw it and haven’t stopped using it yet. Can’t wait to see what they do with it in the future. Good work guys (and gals) at Lifehacker!

Firefox Tools for Google Reader

Do you use Google Reader a lot?

Ever since Google moved Google Reader over to the newer, cleaner and better design I have been using it to handle all of my feed reading. I have gone from FeedBurner, to Newsgator, to Rojo to Google Reader – so I have tried a lot. Google Reader beats the rest of them hands down.

I just posted my big Google Reader Guide over at my personal blog, Mitchelaneous. There are a lot of Firefox and Greasemonkey goodies in there for you to check out, so please do so. If you know of any good ones that might have missed let me know as well. I did my best to find the best of the best.

Google Reader Notifier

I think I may have found one of my new favorite extensions for Firefox. I use and I love the Google Reader. It handles all my RSS feeds well, and thanks to it I never miss a beat. This firefox extension shows you how many unread items you have in your Google Reader account.

If you use the Google Reader a lot, this is a priceless pleasure to have in your browser.

Google Reader Toolkit

I think Google Reader is one of the few services of Google’s that I use because it feels like only one of a few that they have really gotten right. The Google Reader is a wonderful thing to use, and it makes going through and large RSS list a breeze. To make your getting in and out of it a little easier, I would suggest picking up the Google Reader Toolkit. This Firefox extension will allow you to place its’ icon on Firefox status bar and notifies you if there are updates available on Google Reader.

Google Reader Optimized

If you use either the Greasemonkey or Stylish Firefox extensions, I have the perfect extension for you when it comes to getting a little more browsing room while using Google Reader.

Just load this bad boy up via either one of those extensions and you should be good to go.

So where does it save you the room? Well for the most part it looks like it just cuts off the Google stuff from the top and gives you the “full view” of the reader. This is nice if you just hate seeing that Google Reader logo at the top every time you login.
