I’ve been trying out Google Reader as a
replacement ever since the big
Reader update a month ago.
I’ve planned to write up a review after a few weeks of
Conor O’Neill beat
me to it, by writing a Google
Reader review which contains pretty much everything I wanted
to say about it.
So I figure I should
add my voice to the chorus:
I’ve found it very frustrating that you can’t put a feed in a folder at subscription time. This one feature would makes me happy as a clam. The work-around — to go into the ‘Manage subscriptions’ page and organize uncategorized feeds — is painfully slow. I mean, I can’t even load the ‘Manage subscriptions’ page in under 5 minutes (Firefox 2 on a PowerBook G4)! Basiclaly, Google Reader’s tools for organizing feeds don’t scale to large subscription lists. Otherwise, It’s a great piece of work — despite this pain I’ve been very reluctant to switch back to Bloglines.
