Google reader revamped!

As expected, after making over Gmail with themes, Google has tried to revamp its feed reader as well. Unlike earlier, there’s more of white color instead of blue.

Well, I know you are desperate to know about the changes, I am coming to the point to discuss about the lift over made to Google reader’s look.

  • As discussed, the new look contains more of White color. Just have a look on the images below, and you too can feel that.
  • Collapsible navigation. As shown in the image below, you can collapse or expand, all the side bar menus
  • Hide unread counts – Using this option, you can hide the total unread items in your reader.
  • Share options under individual section – If you are not in a practice of sharing items to friends regularly, this would be helpful for you as you can hide the complete item using the new ‘Collapse’ feature.
  • More feed bundles – There are more sets of inbuilt feeds available for you to subscribe in the go.

Truly speaking, as of now, I felt Google reader is too complicated as such I stuck with ‘Feed Reader’, but I guess, this new look and feel of Google reader will surely attract me towards it. 🙂 By the way I am still wondering, are themes (as in Gmail) in the way to Google reader too? What do you think about it?
