Bloglines & NewsGator

Bloglines has been my primary feed reader for a while now, but given some downtime issues I gave NewsGator's online service a try.

(Either service is recommended to anyone reading more than 2–3 blogs regularly. You can see updates to all blogs on a single page, saving you time in looking at each blog individually – and who doesn't like useful shortcuts!)


  • Easy importing of OPML files
  • Ability to rate posts (Given that posts quickly disappear in an active feed, it'd be of more use in a list of deliberately archived posts)
  • Read feeds disappear from the list of channels


  • Default headline & text sizes appear smaller than those in Bloglines
  • Hierarchy of feeds has a habit of collapsing randomly
  • Can't be synchronised with software based readers such as Onfolio and Feeddemon

Overall, it doesn't offer anything to warrant a switch, but functions well as a backup.
