Google Reader bookmarklets (using jQuery)

[img_assist|nid=63|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=271|height=342]
I've always been annoyed that Google Reader chops off the names of my RSS feed folders in the left-hand navigation pane. At the very least, they should give you a horizontal scrollbar. And all of these titles with "..." in them to save space are also annoying.

Here's what I did to fix that (requires running the jQuery bookmarklet first):

  • Prerequisite: Append jQuery to current page
  • <a href='javascript:void(function(){$("#sub-tree").css("overflow", "auto");$("#sub-tree-item-0-main").css("width","500px");}());'>GReader Tree Scroll - adds a horizontal scrollbar to the list of folders/feeds.

[img_assist|nid=64|title=|desc=|link=none|align=|width=290|height=244]

[img_assist|nid=65|title=|desc=|link=none|align=|width=437|height=258]

Both bookmarklets above use jQuery to make the magic happen, so you'll need to run the "Append jQuery to current page" bookmarklet before you run either of the above bookmarklets.

Tell me what you think!
