Google updated their online RSS reader yesterday and I have to say it is more visually apealing than Bloglines and very easy to use. I find it fits into my RSS reading workflow extremely well and has shortcuts. I’m not sure if the old version supported shortcuts as I never really used it.
If there are any bloglines users out there, I recommend checking it out. I think you may convert. Some of the shortcuts you know and love still apply. I even convinced my wife to drink the RSS Kool-Aid with Google Reader today.
Here is my RSS reader History.
1: Onfolio – About 2 years – Purchased by Microsoft and it doesn’t look as if they are going to support Firefox anymore 🙁 I loved this app, one of the very few apps i’ve ever purchased.
2: Rojo – Very short time, maybe 2 weeks
3: Bloglines – for the last 3 months – Hated the Uglyness of the interface!
4. Google Reader – Today -> the future!!! Pretty and Functional
