[Updated] Google Reader Preview Enhanced v1.07g

By Julien Carosi Last update Apr 12, 2008 — Installed 148,999 times.

Script Summary: Adds a "Preview button" to Google Reader that allows you to view actual article in a frame. Clicking again on that button goes back to RSS view. Does work both in List view and expanded view.



Here are some advantages of the script :

- You can see and post comments right from Google Reader !
- You can read truncated rss feeds entirely.
- You don't lose time opening a new window or tab in order to go on the website and see the article in its original context.

Preview can be opened by clicking on article's title, preview button on typing Shift-V
