Front Page Redesign, Login with Facebook, Google Reader Changes, and Bug Fixes

There are a lot of changes in this update, starting with a front page redesign to streamline it a bit and make the Feature Tour and Test Drive links more usable. We also added a login box directly to the front page to save an extra click, and while we were at it added Facebook Connect support so you can either login or create a new account using your Facebook credentials.

Selecting Login with Facebook the first time will open a new window from Facebook where you have to give permission for FeedsAnywhere to connect. From then on just clicking on the Login with Facebook button will log you onto FeedsAnywhere, assuming you are logged in to Facebook on the same browser of course.

A new Facebook tab will also appear in your user profile that gives you a way to unlink your Facebook account if you need to in the future and an optional check box to let your friends see that you have an account on FeedsAnywhere.

If you are a Google Reader user you've probably heard that Google Reader shared items have been removed in favor of sharing through Google+. Because of this we have removed the option of adding an item to your shared list. We'll working on adding Google+ support in the future. Email, Facebook, Instapaper, and Twitter sharing remain unchanged.

And finally there was a long list of bug fixes. Here is a sampling:
- Fixed a problem with the page count being wrong when not on page one.
- The jGestures plug-in will no longer be loaded when using IE8.
- Loading a page higher than one with no items will now show the navigation bar and the correct unread count.
- Mark Page Read is now hidden whenever it won't do anything.
