Google recently updated the mobile version of Google Reader. The New version works very well with iPhone and other smartphones. The good news is that even if you don’t have an iPhone you can enjoy the mobile version of Google Reader from your Firefox Sidebar.

Like other web apps that are designed for the iPhone interface, Google Reader fits very well in Firefox (and other browsers) sidebar.

It relies heavily on touch because the pages I have a user acting on, are usually a collection of child records. Caching is a big help in this respect.Thanks
