How to get Wowhead tooltips in Google Reader


An ode: Wowhead tooltips, O how I heart thee! I wish...eth I wouldst to be able to carry thou aroundst in mine pockets. (Did people even have pockets back when they went around saying thee and thou? Mine coineth purse?) Anyway, the point is: we love Wowhead tooltips because all it takes is a mouse-hover to find out everything you want to know about an item mentioned on WoW Insider or other websites. And now that you've gone ahead and put WoW Insider on your Google Reader, you can take the next step to get the nifty little tooltips in to show up in your RSS feeds.

Here's how:
  1. Get the latest version of Firefox.
  2. Get the Greasemonkey extension for Firefox.
  3. Restart Firefox.
  4. Install the Wowhead script for Greasemonkey.
  5. Right-click the monkey icon in the bottom right corner of Firefox and click "Manage User Scripts." Click "Add" twice and enter the following URLs:
    http://www.google.com/reader/view/*
    https://www.google.com/reader/view/*
When you're done, you should be able to see tooltips in your reader like I've shown in the image above. Just not in your pocket... er, coin purse.
