How to view Google Reader in grid layout in Chrome

Google Reader is a Web-based aggregator, capable of reading Atom and RSS feeds online or offline.
The user interface of Google Reader might not impress everyone, as its spacious gaps between columns and menu can be more distracting then helpful. So why not use a user friendly display like grid view to use Google Reader. Well then theres a extension that can help you to make it a beauty.

As an alternative to viewing Google Reader in list or expanded mode, there’s a Chrome extension that can transform it into a grid of stories. Installing and configuring the extension is quick and easy, so let’s get started:

Step 1: Install a copy of Grid Preview for Google Reader from HERE for your Chrome Web browser.

Step 2: Head to Google Reader in your Web browser. You’ll see a new drop-down box next to the Folder settings button that allows you to choose how many columns you want in the grid. Pick a number that works best for your eyes. (This is also where you can choose “Close grid” to stop displaying items in a grid.)

Step 3: Make sure your Google Reader is set to display the Expanded view instead of List view. You should see the articles populate the grid.
