Google’s at it again. They apparently have a top 100 list of things they want to do and they also let their engineers come up with things for Google to do. We’ve already seen their foray in personal pages, well, they have other things out there.
I have long been looking for a decent RSS feed reader, I tried a few and they all seem just too heavy. Incidentally, if anyone knows of a lightweight feed reader that integrates well with KDE let me know.
I wandered over to the Google Lab and had a look at what was on offer. Among other things, they have Google Reader. “Oh ho,” thought I, “looks interesting” and it was. It’s a web based RSS feed reader. It’s still in beta (aren’t most Google products?) and it doesn’t seem able to actually tell you when a feed is updated. But it’s fairly quick and easy to set up, Google search helps you find the feeds and the reading area is fairly large.
You can even edit the existing tags to make them into the tags you find useful. They even have an Official Google Reader Blog. Aww, bless.
Upcoming Google products are found here, so it’s worth checking it out from time to time.
Pretty picture time:
