Google Reader Updated

    February 2, 2006

The Google Reader team have issued an update. The main new feature is a drop-down that gives you quick access to all of your labels, but the keyboard access to the same feature is a cooler: a dark gray overlay that appears when you hit g, then l.

Other features:

  • Hover over cropped titles to read the whole thing in a tooltip
  • “Keep Unread” checkbox fixed in IE
  • Don’t reset the window scroll position for some keyboard shortcuts (like scan down/up).
  • Improved sorting and filtering in the subscriptions drawer.
  • Better error messages for empty and not found feeds.
