Simplify GR by Dave Zaikos

Designed for Google Reader, Simplify GR integrates tools such as Helvetireader and FancyBox to provide a clean, minimalistic reading experience.

The Simplify GR extension utilizes Helvetireader to reduce the clutter of the Google Reader interface by limiting the number of colours, buttons and social features normally present. When reading articles in Google Reader some entries contain the entire article, while others do not, requiring you to visit the originating website. Simplify GR makes this process more seamless by opening the originating web site in an clean panel that floats overtop of the Google Reader page. This panel allows you to read an article and return to Google Reader in an incredibly seamless fashion. Simplify GR takes its seamlessness even further by opening full articles loaded within this floating panel through Instapaper‘s text view–providing a distraction-free reading experience similar to Safari 5’s Reader mode.

All of these options are configurable within Safari 5’s Preference Extensions pane. You can enable/disable Helvetireader as well as enable/disable FancyBox or adjust how it works.

Pointer: Reeder for iPad

It’s not a Safari Extension, but if you’re a fan of Google Reader and own an iPad, you should check out Reeder for iPad (iTunes affiliate link). It’s by far the best RSS reader for the iPad, and maybe for any platform—you can read my full review of it here.

If you’re an iPhone user, also check out Reeder for iPhone.

Rather than place ads on this site, I’ve decided to post occasional pointer links to iPad or iPhone apps. Whether you decide to click the affiliate links or not, I hope you’ll check the apps out—they’re the ones that I personally find to be the best or most useful of their kind.
