    Google Reader is the best RSS reader I think, so it’s nice to have a Mac skin for it

    I’ve looked at just about every online RSS reader there is. I used Bloglines for years. When AskJeeves (at the time) bought Bloglines, I was worried that the service would go down hill. They reassured me that it wouldn’t. Well, they were wrong. Bugs started popping up, and no matter how much I reported them, they never addressed them.

    When GoogleReader first appeared, I was appauled that anyone would think that GR’s way to read RSS feeds was useful. I went back to buggy Bloglines and suffered.

    Then I read that GR had gone through some changes, and boy was I amazed. It works exactly the way I do with RSS feeds, so it was the clear winner.

    Greasemonkey and Stylish make using the web more and more like using applications. This “skin” to Google Reader is really nice and very well designed. It really does feel like an OS X desktop app.

    Now, if someone would tackle Gmail to look more like mail.app, e-iLife would really shine.

    looks great I am definitely installing this, thanks Jordan!

    @ Dave and Goomba – I couldn’t agree more, I think GoogleReader is very impressive and I haven’t found anything able to compete. A Gmail theme would be great too…
