Tim Bray picked up on it today. He says, variously that it’s
nice and simple,
would hit a sweet spot for a lot of people, oh, and
seems to handle all the different syndication formats just fine.
As I pointed out over on Gareth blog, you can do cross-browser and location feed-synchronisation by using the bookmark synchronisation extension, and take the effort out of sorting the feeds by using the sort bookmarks extension.
Phil Ringnalda doesn’t like it (see comment 6 on the link aove) but to be honest, I think that provided you can install extensions in the browser you’re using then for simple aggregation it’s miles better than Bloglines (disclaimer: I’ve not checked it out since they revamped earlier this week) which never seems to actually return unread items when I ask for them, and despite the almost universal praise, I’ve found to be pretty unsatisfactory.
