Google Reader Gadget Brings Feeds to the Desktop [Downloads]

28 Mag/09

Windows/Linux: Google Desktop users can keep an eye on important feeds with the Google Reader Gadget, a clever but not quite perfect desktop implementation of Google’s RSS reader.

We say “clever” because when you’ve got a subscription or folder selected in the gadget, new posts will pop in automatically, letting you presumably watch any collection of feeds in semi-real time. And we say “not quite perfect” because, as with other Google Desktop gadgets, Google Reader’s box can’t load full HTML feeds, so posts with substantial text, pictures, or videos need to be clicked open in a browser for viewing. And some of the major shortcuts that power Reader users love, like Shift+A for marking all as read, aren’t present here either.

Still, if you’re a feed fiend or just want to keep the news in sight or just behind a gadget wall, you’ll probably dig this gadget. If you can get it to load and install, that is—myself and a few of the gadget’s commenters saw a perpetual “Loading” notice on the gadget, without getting through to the actual feeds (hence the Google-official screenshot), while others had seemingly no trouble at all. The Reader gadget is a free download, requires Google Desktop for Windows or Google Gadgets for Linux.
