Jon Hicks’ beautiful Google Reader theme

The great Jon Hicks has put together a beautiful theme for Google Reader. Makes it look so much nicer.


Simple installation instructions for Firefox. First, install the Stylish Firefox extension. Restart Firefox to make it work. Then go to Google Reader and click on the Stylish icon on your status bar, and choose Write Style > For this URL.


Download Jon’s file and open greader.css from the gReader/Firefox + Camino/ folder in it. Copy the text out of it and paste it into the big textbox in the Add Style window. Add a description (I called it “Jon’s Google Reader Stylator”, but do whatever you want). And: pow! Pretty Google Reader! Everyone’s a winner. Nice one, Jon.
