I woke up to check my feeds this morning, and noticed that Google has added a search box to their popular feed reading app Google Reader. If you have ever used Google Reader, you know that it is an exceptional online reader, but one of it’s biggest flaws was the lack of a built in search. The best work-around was to make a custom search engine in Google Co-op, but this had to be updated each time you subscribed to something new, plus you could not star/share searched items. The new integrated search does it perfectly, and even lets you search all, by subscription, or by folder.
The bad news is that any custom Google Reader userstyles will now not work. I found this out when I logged in to find my Google Reader OSX theme completely jumbled around. Guess I’ll just have to wait until the developer releases a new version.
