    Waiting for an extension for this. It´s surprising how Google doesn´t even provide an opt-out option or some other simply security features that every brwoser should have! , like deleting your history when closing ¬¬

    It’s interesting that using either Firefox or IE 7, this entry won’t show up in my Google Reader feed. The reader says there’s an unread entry but refuses to display it. Anyone else having or reporting such a strange thing . . . ?
