Trying out Google Reader 00:52 on Tuesday
Very conveniently Google released a beta of their new feed reader, and having used it for a couple of days it rocks. Two major nuisances though:
- I can’t rename tags / folders. Having put ten feeds into a folder, I have to load each one by one to move them under a different folder. I’ve talked before about the need to provide hierarchy along tags, but this “tags are folders or maybe vice versa” is confusing.
- There’s no search. Yes. A Google product. Without search.
Otherwise Google Reader is very, very good. At least as good as the desktop applications available. Feed readers are a new breed of software so it’s logical this is where web apps could catch on most quickly.
