    OK, version 0.3 is uploaded. Apart from increasing the counter maximum from 100 to 1000, there are some minor implementation changes, and also now the multiple feeds view opens in a tab next to the tab on which the page action was activated.

    I don't know if it's the new version, but I've just realized that there is a huge memory leak when I'm using TPGoogleReader. At the moment, its memory usage is ~200 Mo, and it's increasing. Does somebody else experience this memory leak ?

    The issue with CNT now seems to be fixed in the latest Dev update (3.0.190.1) ...

    Had time to look at the new version now and the 'Feed' page ...

    Comments as follows ...

    At the moment the URL takes you to a text page (I know the icon takes you to the subscribe page)

    However, this should be replaced with just a description of the feed, cutting off the URL before the address would suffice, (see feed in IE or popup in this extension http://code.google.com/p/gtools-for-chrome/)

    Clicking on the description (or icon) would then take you to the subscribe page in GR

    Apart from this, I think your extension is excellent ...

    Keep up the good work ;-)

    PS: Just noticed that your extension now sits at the end of installed extensions on the toolstrip, whereas previous versions always sat at the front ...

    Hello.

    As for the memory leak, for me it also takes more memory than it should. Not as much as 200M but still much too much, and increases slowly but steadily. And I must say I have no idea why this happens. I'm not creating big objects and I'm not storing any large information. Maybe I'm missing something, because I doubt if there is a bug in Chrome that causes this. I'm going to look into it.

    As for the feeds page, I'll probably change something there when I have better idea. For me the ability to see the feed as text is also useful, and so is seeing the feed URL. But probably the icon for opening it in GR is just too little. I know most people will want to open the feed in GR and not as text, so probably the clicking area for opening in GR should be bigger

    There's also another issue: some pages load some of their content dynamically and the result is that sometimes the feeds list is not full, it contains only some of the feeds from that page. I'm not sure why this is like this, but I think I can fix it.

    Thanks for your opinions.

    Here are some obvious things you might have missed.

    Make sure you drop any reference to objects that you aren't using. e.g:
    Code:
    reference = null
    That way, the garbage collector will be able to collect it.

    If you subscribe to listeners, make sure you don't subscribe twice or more.

    Otherwise, keep up the great job.

    I was basing my suggestions on what I've seen in other subscription pages ...

    I'm reasonably new to GR so have had quite a steep learning curve over the last couple of days ...

    All the ones I've looked at just have a list of feeds with a description ...

    At the end of the day I guess it's just down to personal preference, if I'd seen your's first I wouldn't know any better !!

    Obviously the one thing I can do now is get rid of the other extension ;-)

    The really big plus is the ability to have the feeds open automatically (I'm surprised more people haven't commented) ...

    If you're going to leave it as it is at the moment, then you need to put some kind of comment on the page to direct people to click on the icon to subscribe ...


    Look forward to your next release :-D

    Just as a matter of interest what determines where the extension sits on the toolstrip

    I just uploaded version 0.3.2. The feeds list is altered a bit, now you can click the icon or the feed name to open it in GR. Apart from that, there was an issue that on some pages not all the feeds were listed on the feeds list.

    There still seems to be a memory leak. Wither there's something I'm missing or the extensions sandbox is not perfect in Chrome, I don't know now.

    I don't know what determines the order of extensions but it seems to me that you haven't realised that the extensions can be reordered by drag and drop. You have to make an extension show its name (like on the screenshot) and drag the name.
