* The extension shows the number of unread items in Google Reader.
* If you switch to auto-opening mode (check a checkbox on the browser action popup) then the extension automatically opens all new items in new background tabs, and marks them as read in GR. That's a great thing - you find new things to read just appear, without even clicking anything! Also, at least for me, reading items in their full version by navigating to the item's link is much more enjoyable than reading the abbreviated, style-less version directly in GR.
* You can set how many open tabs you want at most, and in the auto-opening mode TPGR won't exceed this amount. When it is reached, TPGR waits until you close some tabs before opening more.
* When working in the normal mode (where new items do not get opened automatically), on the popup there are links for opening one, five, ten or twenty next unread items from Google Reader. The items will be automatically marked as read.
* Icon click, double-click and triple click actions are configurable. The options are: open popup, open Google Reader, subscribe to feed on current page, toggle between automatic and manual mode, open one, five, ten or twenty next unread items.
* In the automatic mode, number of automatically opened tabs is displayed on the browser action. When you switch to one of the opened tabs, the number is automatically decremented after a short (configurable) delay.
* On the popup there are links to open Google Reader or Feedly if you prefer (Feedly requires Feedly Chrome Extension installed. Feeds detected on pages can also be opened in either of the readers (or as raw XML).
Subscribing to feeds
* When a website has a feed, the extension icon turns from green to orange and blinks. Click it to open the popup and see the list of feeds on the page. Click any of them to open it in Google Reader or Feedly (does not subscribe, just opens and lets you view it).
* When you navigate directly to an RSS or Atom page (like this one: Ruby News) normally Chrome displays a mess. With TPGoogleReader you will get the page displayed in a monospace font with preserved formatting, or immediately in Google Reader or Feedly.
