I first heard about RSS at a Gnomedex in Des Moines several years ago (Chris Pirillo was an early evangelist). Since then I’ve tried Feed Demon, My Yahoo!, Blogliines, Safari… and a bunch of other news readers that I can’t recall. I just never found one that felt right for me. All the while, the list of blogs and websites I read daily kept growing. Enter Google Reader.
I really like this thing. I’m on two or three different computers in a typical day so I want/need something web-based. I like the UI for the same reasons I like Gmail. And I can already see that I’m able to scan more sites in less time. [LifeHacker review]
