➟ Pure Reader theme for Google Reader

I’ve tried a few of these extensions that reskin Google Reader to look a little better or more usable, but always go back to the old vanilla theme. This is the first that really succeeds in bringing a modern application feel to it. In some ways, it reminds me of Reeder for iOS (yes, I’ve tried the desktop version, and I didn’t like it). One of the problems with Google Reader’s list view – they might argue it’s a feature – is the lack of white space between lines, making it hard to skim efficiently. Pure Reader has an abundance of white space which makes for more scrolling, but coherent scrolling. Available for Safari and Chrome.

Update: Guess I spoke too soon; my Reeder for Mac just updated with a brand new UI, featuring a 3-pane browser/viewer and more desktop-like conventions. Very nice. Get it here.
