Google Reader Announced

Google just announced their new web based RSS reader called unsurprisingly Google Reader and it seems fairly cool for a web based application. Keyboard command shortcuts and lots of ajax goodness make for a pretty useful interface. It works fine in Safari so that’s certainly a plus. It also has support for importing your existing feed list via OPML.

All the same, I don’t expect to give up NetNewsWire Pro any time soon, but this is definitely a handy way to catch up on news if I’m away from my primary computer. Of course now that Newsgator has purchased NetNewsWire I’m probably more inclined to use their web application anyway.
