Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Feedlounge web-based aggregator

Alex King and Scott Sanders have announced FeedLounge, a “state of the art web-based feed reader.” Alex invited me to be an alpha tester, so I spent some time kicking it around yesterday. Color me impressed.

Keeping in mind that this is alpha software, I’ll grant you that I found a couple of suggestions to make. However, to echo the sentiments of Geoff, FeedLounge often feels much more like a desktop application than a web page. Clever combinations of Ajax and CSS add a ton of “hey wow” moments when using the system. As with Alex’s other works, the user interface is clean and easy to navigate.

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

    I’m interested to see how this compares to NewsGator. With their acquisition of FeedDemon, I think that NewsGator is goin’ to do something rather cool by purging together offline and online feed reading. But i’m sure Alex has made something that can compete with that.
