Google Reader

Now this one was due from Google, and appeared without the usual Google Chaos. A RSS Feed Reader competing with Bloglines, My Yahoo!

Being web browser based it has all the usual drawbacks and advantages. AJAX goodness on one hand and "Arrgh! The page has been corrupted" on the other.

Not a completely polished product yet, e.g. very few loading messages to notify user of any processing as in Gmail ( Alex Bosworth's Ajax Mistakes #1)

OPML importing from current feed reader(Suace Reader) failed on the first time with adding just one feed, and the second time it took ages to import. I am still not sure it has imported everything.

As of now it doesn't seem usable enough for me. Even Google Sidebar is much more useful than Google Reader.
