An update on Goodlinks my read-it-later app

Last July I wrote the following about Goodlinks. In my opinion, GoodLinks is one of the best read-it-later apps out there. The reading experience is excellent.

Toggle Control Center with a keyboard shortcut in Big Sur

I installed Big Sur on my 2015 MacBook Pro the other day. One area that I wanted to customize was the menubar. There is so much blank space between the icons, it’s a gigantic waste of space and looks awful.
