Google Reader gets revamped (also: Bloglines does as little as possible)

Filed as General on September 29, 2006 5:59 am

Google have revamped their online RSS reader, called Google Reader, and we’€™re talking totally! On a first glance it looks a lot better than the last time I checked out the service, but I really don’€™t know since I’€™m not a Google Reader user. That might change, however ‘€“ I intend to give it a go in the upcoming weeks.

The launch post over at the official Google Reader blog spells it out for you, and gives you a video clip that tells the basics.

In other news, Bloglines are doing as little as possible. By that I mean that they’€™ve cut back on reloading the left frame which is nice, and now they check for feed updates more often. Works good enough for me, being a Bloglines user and all.

    The upgrade of google reader is very reasonable, I think, because the old version could not compete with Opera based feed reader.

    Thank you for sharing this story with me !
