Helvetireader in Mozilla Prism

Jon Hicks has just released Helvetireader, a lovely minimalist theme for Google Reader. He’s implemented it as a GreaseMonkey script which pulls in the CSS file direct from helvetireader.com, which is a cool touch. He also notes that “the Helvetireader user script is ideal for using with Fluid.app to create a standalone application”. It is, of course, also ideal for using with Mozilla Prism for those of us not on a Mac (or those on a Mac who prefer Prism to Fluid). Grab helvetireader.webapp for all the well-styled-Google-Reader-in-its-own-window you’ll ever need. (Those of you of a technical bent: all I did was add a webapp.css saying @import url(http://www.helvetireader.com/css/helvetireader.css); to greader.webapp, so you could do that yourself and add any extra customisation you want to that file.)

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
