Erin pointed me to Helvetireader a minimal interface for Google Reader. I was delighted to see that they use swissmiss for the screenshot on the homepage. YAY!
Helvetireader is a userscript that pares down Google Reader to what I consider to be the essentials. In particular, it’s made for looking at feeds in the expanded view, using Keyboard Shortcuts instead of on-screen buttons. It’s not going to suit how everyone uses Google Reader, so you can take the CSS and personalise to your hearts content! All you need is a browser that supports userscripts (see below) and, of course, Helvetica.

I waited 3 MONTHS for a post about helvetica so that I could do a screengrab! Thanks for featuring the wee side-project!
