    not work……..

  2. ludoo says:

    favicon script no more works…
    i’m working on a new one…

  3. Brunno Gomes says:

    A description would have been nice…

  4. s-one says:

    Great extension! Any way to add a preview option to preview feeds exactly how they are on the website the feed came from? Without a specific button to press, just doing it automatically if the option is enabled in GoogleReaderPlus.

    Thanks!

  5. ludoo says:

    Extension updated !!

    Favicons works again

    NEWS : Current Chromium seems support userscripts. So I hope chrome will soon providing a greasemonkey engine like.

  6. Calebk says:

    This extension is very simple but the favicon and correct width features do make the Google Reader experience much nicer.

  7. Steve says:

    Does this extension rely on toolstrip? I see that in your source. Anyway it’s not working for me on the latest development release (Windoze), no favicons etc. O well thanks anyway.

  8. Greg says:

    I appreciate this, but it doesn’t work for me. I tried manually editing the manifest.json to include other TLD’s, but failed. But even on .com favicons are broken. I miss being able to hid the clutter on the screen too, and it would be great if that could be added. Also, embedded original views are great.

  9. ludoo says:

    Thanks for reporting bugs!
    last versions of chrome seems lock the xmlhttprequest.
    until i found a solution, it effectively no more works!!

  10. ludoo says:

    v1.2.0 fix this problem.

    Please update !!

  11. Alexander_Q says:

    The official google favicons only appear in the sidebar, and not next to each entry. On my system, your extension did both, however, I had the following problem: if multiple feeds existed in one folder, selecting the folder would show the favicons placed correctly. However, if feeds were selected separately, the icons overlapped the text.

    I believe your extension has the potential to be better than the official google product. I urge you to correct the above small error.

  12. ludoo says:

    thanks for report this bug !
    i already see it but haven’t fixed it because google launched its own feature.
    anyway, i haven’t see that google just fill favicon in treeview…
    so i update my own version to fix this css offset bug !
    and i change too the favicon provider to use the same as google !
    getfavicon.appspot.com -> s2.googleusercontent.com/s2/favicons

    have fun !!

  13. ludoo says:

    Preview feature added !!!

  14. Alexander_Q says:

    Fantastic work! Your nav-panel favicons are better than google’s! (Google’s are badly aligned). Preview works perfectly too!

    Well done!

  15. Greg says:

    Could you please make it work with other tld? I’m using .ca, but I’m sure others use differently.
    This is currently the best extension, but there are a lot of things you could add to make it even better!
    First of all, there is currently no way to actually follow the link to the article. It would be nice if when I right click-select, or middle click, for the link to lead to the actual article.
    And also, it would be great if you had some themes, to give more page space to the article. But maybe that should be done by a userstyles extension; it’s you extension. But even in it’s current form I’ll use it, so thanks!

  16. ludoo says:

    Hi,

    thanks for feedback!!

    ok others tld will be added in the very soon next release !!

    For a direct link, click on the double arrow on the right of the title.
    Preview is done only with title.
    I’m not able to override ctrl+click, so i used this trick!
    i know it’s not very intuitive that’s why i added tooltip on this two links !

    For your theme feature, i’m sorry but i don’t really understand

    Hi!

    Thanks for the great extension, its really cool. BTW, may be it will be useful to incorporate one another Google Reader related userscript – Google Reader Unread Count (http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/12601). I have a lot of rss feeds and it is useful if you have more than 1000 unread feeds,

  18. ludoO says:

    New version 1.5.0 available.

    with new features :
    – improved fixing missing favicons by adding manual favicon
    – fullscreen
    – filter

    and all primary tld possibles (.com, .ca, .fr, …)

  19. ludoO says:

    @ ava1ar : nice idea ; i didn’t know this script; that i installed immedialtely under my firefox.
    I work on it (integration is easy as chrome adaptation has already be done by the author – angus)
    I just need to wait a little time that my counter comes again over 1000 since i reset all my items yesterday 🙂
    After test, version will be ready !

    Others ideas are welcome (from greasemonkey or from your mind…) !!

    thanks

  20. ludoo says:

    Finally after adding a few feed bundles, counter increases very fast !!!
    so v1.6.0 is right now available with unread feeds counter updated.
