Actual number of unread items / posts in Google Reader


google-reader-unread-count-numberGoogle Reader (RSS junkies) are well aware of situation when you don’t open reader for few days. Unread posts or items pile up like anything and show 1000+ unread, with no way to see the actual count of unread items in Google Reader.

Google Reader Unread Count is a userscript that can display the actual number of unread item instead of vague 1000+ number. For example, you will see unread number of 1012 or 1090 instead of 1000+ estimate.

  1. I’ve whined for at least a year about this and every time I searched for a solution, no one ever had one. I’m glad I finally found this. <3
