How To Add Search To Google Reader

I’ve always found it odd that Google Reader has no search functionality. With search being Google’s bread and butter it is beyond me why their feed reader doesn’t have even the most basic search capability.
After looking for a solution, the best I could come up with is a Greasemonkey script for Firefox. It’s options are fairly basic and the results aren’t displayed in the most elegant manner but it works. And right now it’s better than the alternative which is no search at all.
Greasemonkey is a must have extension for Firefox. If you don’t already have it installed you can grab it from here.
Then all you’ll need to do is download the Google Reader Search script, and you’ll be set. The next time you visit the Google Reader page a box will appear at the top of the screen, like in the picture above, and you’ll be able to search through your feeds.
