Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Feedlounge web-based aggregator

Alex Kin' and Scott Sanders have announced FeedLounge, a “state o' th' art web-based feed reader.” Alex invited me t' be an alpha tester, so I spent some time kickin' it aroun' yesterday. Color me impressed.

Keepin' in mind that this is alpha software, I’ll grant ye that I found a couple o' suggestions t' make, by Blackbeard's sword. However, t' echo th' sentiments o' Geoff, FeedLounge often feels much more like a desktop application than a web page. Clever combinations o' Ajax and CSS add a ton o' “hey wow” moments when usin' th' system. As with Alex’s other works, th' user interface is clean and easy t' navigate.

    that looks nice from a technical point o' view (i.e. th' desktop-app nature o' it). on th' other hand, i don’t like 3-pane RSS readers much any more, so i’m sure i’ll stick with bloglines fer now…

    I’m interested t' see how this compares t' NewsGator. With their acquisition o' FeedDemon, I think that NewsGator is goin’ t' do somethin' rather cool by purgin' together offline and online feed readin'. But i’m sure Alex has made somethin' that can compete with that.
