Google Reader Changes

It looks like the Google Reader team has made some minor-ish changes to Google Reader!

You can now hide your subscriptions by clicking a little arrow between your subscriptions and the feed entries. Once they’re hidden, the feed entry space expands to fill the gap. There is then a little “My Subscriptions” link that expands into a dropdown of all your feeds, when clicked.

The loading “screen” is different now too. Instead of a Erlenmeyer flask and “Loading…” in the center of the window, it’s a little yellow “Loading…” with a little circle animation in the top center of the window.

Even though the new changes are fairly minor, I like them.

Update [September 5, 2007 @ 9:30 PM]: There’s a search box in the top-center of the page now, with a dropdown box to narrow your search to certain feeds and/or folders. Sweet.

Update [September 5, 2007 @ 10:37 PM]: The Google Reader blog confirms this. You can also use the Back/Forward buttons in your browser, and the unread count stops at 1000, now, instead of 100. Awesome.
