Add Google Reader to your Firefox Sidebar

Google Reader in the Firefox sidebar

Google rolled out an improved iPhone interface for Google Reader this week, and here's something neat you can do with it: Add it to your Firefox sidebar. While you can open practically any web site in a Firefox sidebar, some web pages are better suited to the sidebar than others. And the iPhone version of Google Reader fits the bill because unlike the full version of Reader, it's designed for small, narrow screens. And fortunately, you don't need an iPhone to access the new interface.

So here's how to add Google Reader to your sidebar:

  1. Create a new bookmark in your bookmark manager, or by right-clicking on your bookmark toolbar.
  2. Use http://www.google.com/reader/i for the location.
  3. Make sure to check the box that says "Load this bookmark in the sidebar."

And that's it. Click on your bookmark and you should see the iPhone version of Google Reader. Bear in mind that while it's easier to navigate the new iPhone interface than the old one, Google Reader does still look best in full screen.

Here are a few other pages that work well in the Firefox sidebar:
