Chrome: Most of you use RSS regularly, but also note it's pretty annoying to stumble on an RSS feed that truncates the article for the sole purpose of getting you to click the link and leave your RSS reader. We feel your pain, and Google Reader Inline is a Chrome Extension that lets you read the full article without leaving Google Reader to do it. More »
Articles on the web can get a little long sometimes, and it can be difficult to skim them and find the parts that are most relevant to you. That's where Scrollbar of Contents comes in. It's a free add-on for Chrome that adds clickable buttons next to your scrollbar so you can jump right to different sections of the article you're reading. More »
To use Readness, you have to log in through Facebook Connect (I know, I know, but it's worth it), and then go ahead and install a browser extension. So far, Chrome is the only browser supported, but I'm hoping Firefox and Safari follow soon. Right now, Readness tracks every article that you open. However, TNW says that it will soon only add articles that you leave open for a couple of minutes; that will increase the chances of recording things you've actually read. Currently, you've got 15 minutes to remove something from your history if you don't want it to count.
I'm looking forward to seeing Readness expand beyond Chrome and offer better control over which articles you scrobble, but the idea is a brilliant one. The recommendations, in my brief test run, have been good. If you're looking for a way to cut through the massive clutter of your RSS diet, Readness is worth a look.
