Good bye, Bloglines. Hello, Google Reader

I have totally switched from Bloglines to Google Reader. This was the fastest switch ever. And the most surprising one too. You see, I’m spending more than half of every day in my feed aggregator. That’s a lot of time. Needless to say, Bloglines is one of my favourite tools. And we all know how difficult it is to move away from one. Especially, when it does the job.

As I mentioned earlier, I was going to try the new version of Google Reader. And so I did. I found myself two hours later glued to it. And couldn’t leave it. And what is even more surprisng, I haven’t checked into my Bloglines account ever since. It was an instant switch.

Bloglines is a great tool, but Google Reader is almost perfect. It has a number of its own little glitches and annoyances, but it works so great that I need no other.

And just in case you’re interested, here are the things I want to see fixed in Google Reader:

That’s about it. Oh, well, there is a little bug with new items counting, but every RSS reader that I’ve seen passed through this stage at one time or another. With all the smart people at Google, I’m sure it won’t take them long to fix it.
