So Google Reader is google, google going. Pity. I use it almost every day. It wasn’t flashy or fancy, but it did pretty much everything I wanted in a web based RSS news reader. I’ve started looking for alternatives, but so far I’m unimpressed.
I found Netvibes to be a ghastly and overwhelming UI overload of options.
Pulse looked good, but for a product that is supposed to be an RSS reader it was almost impossible to discover how to actually add an RSS feed to it that wasn’t in their standard catalog of feeds. When I did finally manage to add another feed, one that I tried to add just wouldn’t work at all, and another one worked but just looked odd, because the feed items had no pictures displayed.
Any suggestions on what to try next?
