When I was looking for a new and better alternative to my previous feed reader called Brief, that unfortunately bogged down my browser completely, I was keen to keep accessing the feeds in a browser.
I ultimately chose Google Reader. The thing is, that I like reading with a 150% zoom and the new Google Reader design becomes even worse in that instance.
"Google Reader Sanity" is exactly what I needed, because it opens up the clunky interface and reduces the design to only what's absolutely needed to read feeds.
Nice script,worked very good, I like it.
When Google switched to the notorious new design, google reader began to leak memory profusely. Until today, I had no solution for that, and I had to restart firefox more often than I would like. Thanks to GR Sanity, that issue is gone now. Thanks a lot.
Also, an option to hide Home, All Items, and Explore sections on the top left would be welcome and save some more space (separate options would be even better).
Thanks for the marvelous script again.
This is pretty great, but I do have one request/suggestion/supplication.
In the reading pane, the headline links are (except for the current post) *all* faded in color, which makes it hard to tell the new entries from the earlier entries. Would it be possible to have the new items' headlines brighter or bolder and the previously read items left dimmer?
Thanks a lot for your work!
"...tweaked to give the following features:
- Lessen white spaces on top and on bottom
- Reduces margins
The ugly white stripe at screen's bottom unfortunately "survives" also with this script.
this is the best greader script working for now .but please add " mouse ony function" .its so easy reading next item with mouse click.
here is example its not working qith new greader .please add this action to "Google Reader Sanity" .thans very much
There's a bazillion "fix the awful Google Reader UI update" scripts, so I don't know if this is the best of all.
What I do know is that this is the first one that I found that made Google Reader usable again.
No more excessive whitespace cutting the number of headers onscreen in half. No more grey-on-grey color scheme. It works!
Nice work. This one is a keeper.
