I’ve been using Flickr as a bit of testbed for a new site theme I’ve been working on for Google Reader. C’mon after the Bloglines thing, I bet you saw it coming didn’t you?!
Same drill again then. There may well be oddness and inconsistencies, and Google may well make radical changes to the Reader’s markup tomorrow, mucking the whole show up. But for what it’s worth, here it is! Its not trying to be original or ‘better’ than the default theme, it’s just trying to make it look like a Mac OS X app - that’s all I want!
Actually, while this may create bugs, it actually solves a bug that I was seeing in WebKit browsers with the default css. When scrolling, some sidebar elements would annoyingly bounce up and down. Not any more!
The download includes a list of known bugs/todos. If you seen anything not on this list, please leave a comment! I’ll update this page when I upload newer versions of the theme.
