I just noticed something on my Google Personalized Home page (that link will go to yours, if you have one and are signed in to your Google Account): little “plus/click to expand” buttons next to the items in the RSS feeds:
Now you can read a feed item in an smooth AJAX-y fashion right on the Personalized Home page, without having to click away to the originating site. Cool – thanks, Google engineers!
For reference, I have the RSS feeds for Digg and Techmeme on my Google Personalized Home, so I can always see what’s new on them when I first open my browser.
Update: Steve Rubel and I always seem to recognize and post about things like this in the same instant. I don’t know or really care which one of us was first with this, so go check out his post, too.
