Update 8 Oct 2005: Brenton created one-click buttons for Google Reader that I'm using in my sidebar now. Please don't hotlink; copy the button to your own website.
Update 7 Oct 2005: I added a Google Reader subscribe button. You can find it in the left navigation bar. I'm not quite certain that it will work in every instance, but I think the problems I'm seeing right now are due to heavy load on the Google Feeder servers. If you see an error other than "Server Busy" please let me know by leaving a comment below.
Google has just released Google Reader, an online web-based feed reader something like Bloglines. I'll play with it some more and give you my impressions, but so far it seems similar to Bloglines in some respects. Reader doesn't seem to offer nearly the functionality and usefulness of Bloglines. Google loves heavy client-side code crunching and on my PC that's resulting in some klunkiness in the UI, though the keyboard shortcuts are handy. I haven't figured out (yet) how to create an instant-subscribe button from my blog, but I'll put it up as soon as I find a solution. For now, though, I'm off to run some errands and get some lunch on my bike.
IMPORTANT: Please post comments for this article at the new CYCLELICIOUS 2.0 version of this page.
Thanks for the tip Fritz! I'll have to check that out. I use bloglines right now and am surprised at the lack of enhancements it has had. Recently it has not allowed me to access it using my mobile browser on my smartphone. Anyway, I am a big fan of the web-based feed reader as opposed to a client based one so that I can keep up with my favorite blogs from any computer. To those that have not embraced a feed-reader of some sort, why not?
