RIP Google Homepage?

google homepage
For the last 2 weeks or so, Google.com/ig aka Google Homepage aka Google Feedfetcher, my RSS reader of choice has not been loading most of the feeds. I had to painstakingly pick all of the feed addresses out of the source (no OPML 🙁 ) and saved it into a text file. So I’ll be looking for a new reader. I prefer this type of reader because I want to read the freshest posts, not every single post. I’ll judge a story by the headline, and open it to a new tab if it sounds appealing. I don’t get bogged down with the 80 posts I have not yet read in something like Google Reader. Check out the disscussion at the Google HomePage Google Group.

I tried Netvibes a couple months ago, but it seemed bloated and buggy.

Update: I had too many feeds on one page, and now that they have the tab feature, you can just put feeds on another tab if it gets too slow.

    Also, the Google Homepage is cross-platform and machine independent which is why it has excelled above the rest.
