Google Reader – new version

Filed under: Interesting — Rohit Aggarwal @ 8:15 pm

A new version of Google Reader is up. The Google reader team blog has some detail over it here:

“First, we’ve added some things you’ve been asking for, such as unread counts and “mark all as read.” Folder-based navigation makes it easier to organize your subscriptions, and the new expanded view lets you quickly scan over several items at once. And we’ve made sharing much easier – with a single click of the “shared” icon, you can publish an interesting item on your public sharing page for your friends to see.”

Look what others have to say about it.

Techcrunch really liked the product and describes some new features:

Changes include a whole new look and feel, folder navigation, unread item counts and the ability to mark items as read or unread. There’s a “river of news” view (click all feeds, view settings, sort by auto) and one click item sharing with friends. The new expanded view lets you scan down lots of items all at once.”

Niall Kennedy:

The coolest new feature is Google Reader’s continuous scroll of feed items combined with automatically selecting each feed item as you move around the news flow. You’ll find a lot more access keys in the new Reader, mapped to the common Gmail commands for massage navigation and actions. I like the Gmail-style unread count displayed in the page title, allowing me to glance at my row of tabs to see if I have anything new in my feed inbox.”
