Better GReader

Friday, June 27th, 2008 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Better GReader

I’ve tried out many different RSS feed readers, but there’s one that definitely stands out from the rest and that would have to be Google Reader. If you’ve ever tried Google Reader, you know how easy it is to read, prioritize and add your feeds, but today, I’m going to show you a whole slew of great new Google Reader features. Ready, set, let’s go!

The way I’m going to add the new features is through a Firefox extension called Better GReader. It’s brought to you by the same talented developer of the Better Gmail extension, Gina Trapani. So, without further ado, I’m going to go over how to use Better GReader and then I’ll leave you to experiment with all of the different features!

1.) First, head on over to the Better GReader download page here. To begin the download, click on the green Add to Firefox button.

2.) Next, click on the Install button and then Restart Firefox.

3.) Once Firefox has restarted, surf to the Google Reader homepage here and log in to your account.

4.) To activate any of the scripts (features), go up to the Tools menu and click on Add Ons.

5.) Find Better GReader in the list and click on Options.

6.) Under the General tab, you can select different features you would like to use.

7.) Under the Skins tab, you can choose a cool looking interface for your new Google Reader.

8.) Now, with all of that out of the way, you can now get started on trying out all of the new scripts. If you like one, simply keep it and use it. If you don’t really like one, all you have to do is uncheck the box and it will be taken away. It’s that easy. Enjoy!
