Google is a search and ad company, so I would expect all of their products to contain at least one of those two things!
Thanks to their AJAX page loading I can’t even use my browser’s built-in page search.
I’m really enjoying Google Reader for the most part.Â The real killer feature I’m looking for in a feed reader is some intelligent Planet handling.
There are 2 ways of reading Planets, each with its own cons:
Subscribe to Planet Feed
- Duplicate posts from people who are in multiple planets.
- At the mercy of the Planet aggregator’s RSS mangling.Â (Planet posts often differ slightly from the regular RSS post.)
- Unable to pick and choose which feeds to subscribe too in the Planet.
Subscribe to Feeds via Planet’s OPML
- If OPML changes, my feed list doesn’t.
- Hard to organize (Google Reader doesn’t seem to automatically remove duplicates.).
OPML would be the obvious choice is you could somehow subscribe to an OPML feed.Â That way I could remove prune boring blogs from Planets and allow my feed list to be automatically updated when the Planet is.
Any suggestions or am I just way too picky? 😉
