Are you crazy for your Google Reader feeds? Do you check it frequently after short time? Now, you can save little of your time by checking your unread Google Reader items directly through Chrome toolbar. Google reader notifier is a new chrome browser extension of Google which displays notifications of your unread items. This service executes the similar task for Reader as Google Mail Checker executes for Gmail. This is a free and open source program which keeps a track of your Google Reader feeds and gives notifications of new items. Thus, this program not only displays your current unread count, but it also provides pop up notifications with quick access.
How it works?
To get advantage of this service, downloading and installation of this Google Reader Notifier is required. After installation, you will be provided with a new Notifier button adjacent to other extension buttons. If your account contains unread items, it will show the count of your unread items on this Notifier button. Clicking on this icon will display a preview of your unread items; you can select and read different folders. This icon can also be used to open your Reading in a new tab.
You can also get pop up notifications for your new unread items in this Google reader. For that, right-click on the Notifier icon and choose update interval option from 5, 10, 15, or 30 minutes.
There is a lot of other notification extensions on Google, but this is the official extension of it, so it may be the one which you want.
