google reader

I’ve tried a number of stand-alone and web-driven RSS readers in the past few months, but none really gave me what I wanted or presented it in a way that was compelling and simple and, well, just right.
Much to my surprise, I tried out Google Reader and was immediately hit by, “this is exactly what I wanted.” I added a few of the feeds I most regularly check, and I’ve been amazingly happy with this layout and simple feature set. I hope SufrControl doesn’t add this to the list of things denied outright (yes, web filters are evil, more on that in another future post).
