Google feed reader

In a previous post, I was describing the benefits and use of Brief as a feed reader. Now I want to share with you my experiences with Google feed reader.

Although Brief is very good when you have firefox browser and only use a standalone computer (I mean one PC in only one location), Google feed reader solution gaves you more flexibility in the following situations

* You are constantly changing computers and want a movible feed reader without the need of installing the software every time.
* You are connected to the internet "almost" all the time.
* You use different internet browsers (or dont use Firefox at all) and/or cant install brief pluggin.
* You are a restricted user and cant install anything.

So, now I am in constant use of Google feed reader. I check my favorite feeds right after I check my mail. My only negative opinion is that I think there isnt an easy way to manage the feeds (I havent found a nice way to do it - If you know tell me), like for example to subscribe easyly.

By the moment, Im suscribed to 47 feeds (dont hesitate to ask me to add your site) and I hope this humble blog to be part of your current subscriptions.

I now have something like over 180 feeds, considering both active and inactive that is. :(

But yes, Google Reader is way more flexible for such situations that you mention. I far prefer FeedReader but then again I use it for home use only.
