I just noticed a small update on the GUI of Google Reader. The sidebar on the left which shows your subscribed feeds has been updated and now includes a ‘Refresh’ button on top. The link to manage your subscriptions remains at the bottom of the sidebar. Nice little update, looks a lot better!
Update: Noticed some more changes. It seems that many links within the GUI of Google Reader have been changed into buttons, such as the ‘Mark all as read’ at the top of the viewing pane. I love it! :D
