Feedly Mini – Better Integration with Friendfeed and Google Reader Sharing

Update: Special thanks to Phil Glockner (and Louis Gray) for their review!

A part of patch 1.2.142, we are pushing out a new iteration of the feedly mini concept car: a tiny bar which allows you to share and save for later (aka star) directly from any website.

feedly mini - iteration 2

Also noteworthy:

  1. feedly mini maps the web pages you surf on to articles in your feedly/google reader and mark them automatically as read.
  2. Feedly mini also highlights the number of shares, friendfeed conversations and diggs associated with the page you are currently browsing.

It is configured by default to only surface on pages mapping to articles you subscribe or articles which are “hot” on friendfeed and digg. You can control the scope as well as turn it off altogether through the preference page (see “Mini Toolbar” and “Mini Mark As Read” preference knobs).

More on feedly mini next week. In the meantime, please let us know if you have suggestions or run into any bugs.

Note: as part of 1.2.142, we also made a couple step forward toward out continuing quest of simplifying the UI: the searchbox is now integrated with navigation bar and the sidebar has a slighly darker background to have a better separation between what is content and what is navigation.

Update: 1.2.143 fixes a bug in the friendfeed search link when the title of the article includes a ‘-‘ and a regression in the navigation toolbar.

Update: 1.2.147 adds support for a custom blacklist. See preference Mini Exclude List.
