Google Reader wins for me

06 September, 2007

Let’s see, they convert everything to Atom and have just added the only two features I was missing: search and “hide feed list” (I do a lot of feed reading on a tablet).

It even goes offline, has a mobile version and some great keyboard shortcuts, including a nice SHIFT+/. How can you go wrong?

I’ve been on GR for months. This is just more to love.

Yeah, it’s not good. I left a comment on your blog which I’ll duplicate here for my own records:

You’ll see that although the original IDs are maintained in the gr:original-d attribute, the ID itself is different, and Google Reader specific. You’d hope that this would be reversed at some point.

Well, all the required information is preserved for a fix, so hopefully they can do that in the not too distant future.

Indeed, Google reader r0x0rz my b0X0rz. I have noticed it to be much more responsive with the latest updates now too, and the new message counts seem to stay in sync better.
