Google RSS reader update

Google has updated its RSS feed reader they call the Google Reader.

Google is raving about the new interface and exciting changes. Marshall Kirkpatrick at TechCrunch says no one can say it’s not a real RSS reader anymore. Google even has a video explaining how to use what Google is calling an ‘in box to the Web.’

I’ll check it out, but I’m not a fan of Web based feed readers yet. LexBlog is advising clients who are serious about RSS feeds to use FeedDemon (pc’s) or NetNewswire (mac’s) for reading feeds and blogging.

I love the highlighting text and ‘post this to my blog’ in NetNewsire that opens up its sister application Marsedit for blog publishing. Marler and Clark, a new client, even bought macs for Bill Marler and three staff people just for the ease of use of Netnewsire and Marsedit.

I will acknowledge that web based RSS reader apps have some advantages. Downloading and installing applications in large firms is tough as professionals’ machines are often locked down. Web based apps may also allow ease of use for reading feeds on a mobile device.
