Script Summary: Improve the layout of the new Google Reader UI and previews full posts directly in gReader
Although Google is unifying their apps with the same look and feel there are a few problems. In general, the design is ugly, wastes too much space (especially not well thought out for using on screens with relatively little height (less than 800px).
This script attempts to fix some of these poor design choices to make google reader a lot more user friendly and readable
+ Better use of the header area (search and buttons collapsed into 1 toolbar)
+ Less spacing and smaller font size for nav bar
+ Preview posts directly in Google Reader - click on preview link next to post title or press Shift+V
+ Border separating nav and post entry area
+ Better styling of post titles and included better style for identifying the current post being read
+ Collapse and expand the nav bar using the keyboard shortcut Shift+W
