Better GReader Gets Helvetireader

September 22, 2009

The latest version of the Better GReader Firefox extension for Google Reader now includes the gorgeous Helvetireader skin thanks to the generosity of Jon Hicks. Version 0.8 also includes the Smart Google Subscriber script as a newer alternative to Mihai Parparita's 2006 Smart Subscribe, plus several updates. Download Better GReader 0.8 from Mozilla Add-ons.

You just made my day (err night :p) Gina!

Is is just me, or does using the Helvetireader skin (and some of the others) get rid of the “Mark all as Read” button?

This is a great skin with two _buts_ :
At least for me, the button bar (share, etc) only half appears when I hover over it, the other half seems to go under the div.
The original creator seemed to have moved to Fever and might not be updating it.

I just noticed that the “Mark all as Read” button along with the “Refresh” button have been moved to the bottom in the Helvetireader skin. Now it’s perfect!
