Script Summary: Adds a button that toggles Google Reader in and out of a "mouse-only" mode that allows for easy and customizable reading via the mouse buttons (next item, previous item, open in tab/star/share/tag).
Google Reader fans that have iPhones
You may also be interested in another project I'm working on - https://computeriness.com/core. It's a stripped down Google Reader interface built for the iPhone (should work in other mobile devices too). Still very much a work in progress...
Click the "Read By Mouse" button (at bottom of screen) to toggle mouse-mode on and off. (ctrl-z also toggles mouse mode)
Select the action the middle button should take from the drop list on the left.
While mouse mode is on, your mouse buttons do the following:
Left click goes to the next item.
Right click goes to the previous item.
Middle click takes the action that is selected from the droplist (opens original URL in tab, shares the item, stars the item, or adds a specified tag to the item)
While mouse mode is off, your mouse buttons work as normal.
Offers to auto-update as of version 0.2
The middle button features only work if Google Reader is in Expanded View.
You can turn off Firefox's Autoscroll on Middle Click feature by going to about:config, searching for general.autoscroll and setting it to false (double clicking it toggles its value).
Occasionally, a single mouse click will skip over one or several items. It seems like you can avoid this if you just do your clicks in an empty space of the blue area where your subscriptions are listed.
