I’m compiling what’s turning out to be a massive list of items comparing Bloglines, which I’ve used to read almost 1000 feeds for a couple of years, and Google Reader, which I’ve been using since the recent makeover it received. When its ready, I’ll post a very thorough review/comparison of the two.
In the mean time, one of the things that bugged me about Google Reader was the inability to unsubscribe from a feed without going to the Settings page, which takes forever to load and is not very responsive at all when you’ve got over 600 feeds.
Just this morning, I noticed a new “Feed Settings” button in Google Reader, and sure enough, you can now Unsubscribe from a feed while viewing it. I didn’t see anything mentioning this new feature on the Google Reader blog, but it’s a welcome addition.
Now, I just wish they’d give you the ability to edit the “tags” for a feed (not just an individual post) from the same interface. Then I wouldn’t have to go to the slow, nasty, huge Settings page hardly at all.
