0.8 breaks tagging in absolute compact
unread count in favicon doesn`t work, but the skins are pretty cool
I like most of it's features, but the best, unread count in favicon, doesn't work, instead, it always shows either 29 or 32, no matter how many unread items there are.
there seems to be some problems either with the current Firefox version or this addon, since the performance drop is just unbearable. my guess is that the problem is with firefox, since i already notice a small performance drop visiting the regular reader webpage.
other than that, the features are perfect. the preview button is the heart of this addon. too bad to me performance is a deal breaker... otherwise i would use only firefox, but for now im stuck using an application shortcut from chrome to run reader. (not bad, but i'd rather have one browser open)
Out of 30+ extensions I use, I would have to rate GReader number one, because RSS feeds are so useful for me on a daily basis. I was a long-time user of Bloglines and was always hesitant to switch because I didn't like the google interface and wasted space, but Better GReader fixes this for me. What sealed the deal is the "preview" feature, which allows me to open the original article from right inside google reader instead of a new tab! This saves so much time and effort continually opening an closing new tabs. Fantastic on my UMPC with a 7" screen as well.
This has been mentioned a few post below by Richard Lee on July 1, 2009...
The Google Reader Absolutely Compact script being used in this addon needs to be updated to show the "Mark all as Read" button.
I am currently using 'None' as the selected skin within the addon and using the Google Reader Absolutely Compact userscript with Greasemonkey to get around this.
In the absolutely compact view you have to put back the arrows on the right side, so we can open the items in new tabs without expanding them. Correct this important problem asap, please!
Nice update. It doesn't appear to be finding all my favicons. It's like the first 50 subscriptions get a favicon, and nothing below that does.
There's a small bug. I can't type capital V. Using (shift+v) combination, even in the comments fields, toggled the Preview mode.
I installed the newest version this morning (0.7.3) on FF 3.5.2 and it caused the stop button in my browser to blink continuously until I disabled Better GReader. I love the plugin, but this version made FF freak out.
Excellent addon but in the version 0.7.2 there seems to be a bug :( Instead of coloring HEADINGS of posts only it colors WHOLE POSTS...
Hi! Great collection but in last version (0.7) the arrows on the left are gone (the
arrows that open the single item in a new tab). A great addon is ruined.
Could you reintroduce this important feature in next version? Thank you.
A wonderful add-on (with the magical SHIFT+Y ;) )
The only-problem : SHIFT+Y is incompatible with the "Read It Later" Extension :(
I love the Absolutely Compact skin, except for one thing: the "Mark all as Read" and "Refresh" buttons are missing! They should be right next to the "Feed Settings" button, and removing them just makes that line of the display even blanker, so it's hard to imagine why they would be deliberately removed.
THANK YOU!!! This update fixes my number one annoyance with following my RSS feeds. Preview pages inline works once again!
Great addon. Install 0.52 if you want the inline preview back, and disable update check or you'll keep installing the broken version.. or I least I did.
I wish the inline preview pane worked. Please let me know when it's up and running again!
I love the inline preview, which is the #1 reason I use this. Ever since the latest FireFox update, this functionality is broken. I'm here to add to the numbers reporting this. Thanks!
I love Better GReader so much, but I really miss the inline preview.
really want the preview button back!
It would be rated higher, but since the last update, the preview button no longer even shows up for the entries. I've gotten very addicted to that button and miss it greatly.
Please update regularly! :( Google is makinf changes very often and then this great add-on doesn't work properly! :D You spoiled me with it!
Please update it for 3.1
