Did you know, you can add a next button to your browser and it will open the next unread item in your Google reader list? But it opens the pages on the actual web sites they come from. This adds a bit of colour to your reading, and you get to see comments etc straight away. I also use Google reader to keep up with lots of sites that aren’t blogs, such as creative ireland. So it’s very handy for feeds like that, as I jump to the whole thread rather than just the first post, which is all you get in google reader.

Here’s how: In Google Reader go to Settings then Goodies, and just drag the Nextbutton onto your toolbar
Bonus tip: Open (Windows) Accessibility Options / Mouse and turn on Mousekeys. The when you press 5 on your numerical keypad, it will open the next post, (after you’ve clicked the next button once).
