Google Reader

Knowing that Google usually is really interested in what I have to say about their products, I’ve decided to chime in on the bashing of Google’s newest product, Google Reader. It sucks. It really does. What the hell were they thinking? How can anyone release something like this, even into beta, without the sole intention of running their business into the ground?
Oh well, I guess I’ll just have to wait for a Feedlounge invite.

    I left my fascinating fresh local installation of PhpWiki and quite-as-fresh ugly WordPress to check it out–it is beta, indeed.

    It imported OPML file (with groups) from NNW, Safari is mostly a no-no, but behaves okay in Camino. A good alternative for Bloglines, IMHO.

    @Chris, not an alternative at all, IMHO. Not intuitive enough, no real group view, no quick scrolling through feeds…ach, there are heaps of things that are simply wrong with it.
    @nwistheone: Yep, Feedlounge looks extremely awesome. Can’t wait to check it out.
