Better buckle up – Bloglines!!!

Google today released big update to its feed reader. They’re characterizing their RSS reader as “your inbox for the Web,” which I kinda like. One of the big new features is that each user now gets their own public page where they can share feed items. It’s similar to Bloglines’ clip blogs. Another feature is feed discovery tool. More info is here.

UPDATE: Bloglines Does UI Upgrade Too..

Bloglines

Hot on the heels of the well-received Google Reader re-design, I received a tip tonight (thanks Mike Rundle) that Bloglines has also done a slight re-design. On their blog they note:

“You might have noticed a few fancy little changes we’ve made to your feed tree on the left pane today. You’ll like them even more when you learn what’s behind the scenes!

We no longer update the entire left pane when the unread or “kept as new” counts change. Now the counts update in place with a fading yellow indicator. The result is a faster, more pleasant way to cruise through your feeds, especially for those quick on the hotkeys.

We’ve decreased the time between automatic updates to your unread counts so you don’t have to press the “r” hotkey quite so often.”

It also appears to be a different typeface and a slightly ‘fancier’ look. Some nice ajax touches. This is just on the left navigation pane though – the actual reading pane stays the same. It’d be great if the ajax changes could be applied to the whole screen…

The Game is On!
