The GReader extension is for Safari 5.0 or later. I based this off of my previous GReader-Checker extension and made it to become a complete Google Reader extension.
What GReader does:
– Updates a toolbar icon when there is a new feed item in Google Reader.
– This updates you on your total unread count.
– Enables “Add to Google Reader” functionality to add an RSS feed to Google Reader when the RSS icon is clicked upon in the address bar.
– Direct feed integration into Google Reader and bypasses any hoopla needed to add the feed to your Reader.
– Adds many options for update interval from as frequent as 5 seconds to as infrequent as 1 hour.
– NEW in v2.02: GReader now switches to open Google Reader tab if open, or creates a new one if one isn’t open.
– NEW in v2.03: Code optimized
– NEW in v2.04: Open GReader in current tab if on blank or Top Sites. Special thanks to Nicholas Helke (@nHenke on Twitter) for his patch.
Why should you use GReader?
– It works
– It’s pretty
– It has more options than others out there
– It’s even better than GReader-Checker
To do list for future GReader releases:
– Customizable Google Reader styles
– Complete integration with Google Reader
– Give the best possible user experience for Google Reader on Safari 5
– Become the most functional Google Reader extension for Safari 5
