Google Reader is a great tool to keep track of your favorite sites and news using RSS feeds. To make Google Reader visually appealing, I’ve recently added favicons next to website names to make them stand out a bit and easier to identify quickly. Here’s how you can enable favicons in Google Reader.
How to enable favicons in Google Reader
Login to your Google Reader account, click the settings wheel icon and select Reader Settings.
Go to Preferences tab.
Under Misc section, check the box that says Show Favicons for Subscription.
There is another way you can enable favicons in Google Reader. Open Google Reader and click on the small arrow right next to subscriptions tab.
Open the dropdown menu and click on Use Favicons.
It will now show favicons of all the websites in your feeds — oh yeah, much better!
