Google Reader Beautification: Helvetireader

helvetireaderSo crisp and clean!

I have been a Google Read­er for a good while now and I think it is a very fine web appli­ca­tion. It does what I expect it to do and it does it well. It is util­i­tar­i­an. It is use­ful. I use it dai­ly.

But now, I find it even more enjoy­able to use. Two grease­mon­key scripts have turned my stan­dard Read­er inter­face into some­thing beau­ti­ful and even more use­able (imho).

Behold:

There are even instruc­tions for using the scripts with Flu­id. If you are not famil­iar with Flu­id, it is a util­i­ty for cre­at­ing site-spe­cif­ic browsers based on Safari (WebKit). Get famil­iar. You’ll like it.

So go, make your Read­er pret­ti­er (and sub­scribe to this blog’s feed).
