Updated “Google Reader Unread Count in Gmail” Script

Nearly 3 years ago I wrote a Greasemonkey script to show Google Reader’s unread count in Gmail’s top navigation bar. I was quite satisfied at first and shared it on userscripts.org, but later I found that it was too time-consuming for me since I always wanted to monitor the number and click through when it turned “1”. So I disabled it and forgot about it.

But today after cleaning up the spam comments, I found a comment about this script. In fact someone also posted in the userscripts.org forum and even named it as one of the favourates. Thanks dear users! I knew I had to make an update and it turned out to be quite simple.

So go to the script page and install it. Should you have any problem with it, just leave a comment below.


  1. Thanks again for the excellent update (I posted the request). Today it crossed my mind that a “mirror twin” script would also be handy. I mean “Gmail Unread Count in Google Reader.”

    Could this one be transformed to its twin?

  2. Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
