I like it when companies give me features I ask for.

  1. Last night I was half asleep and wondering how the heck I got from google reader to gmail without meaning to. Where’d this search bar come from? Wait! These aren’t my labels…they’re my tags. Ooooooo.

  3. Scoble,

    Switch to Netvibes. They have search for last year or so. Not to mention built-in podcast playback and my favorite local Ajax rendering of the RSS stories and full caching.

    Love it when I am traveling

  5. Anyone else notice that in the reading pane you can no longer distinguish between new posts and ones you have already read? The already read ones used to be grayed out…

  7. Hey!

    Great news, I really love the new features too :)
    I’ve been waiting for Search in the feeds for sooo long, same for the “100+” detail, it’s nice to finally see “969 left” :D.

  9. Mark: heh. If I really wanted to game Techmeme I’d just get all my friends to link to it. TechMeme’s algorithms don’t rely on repetition, so this is a sad attempt if that was what it is.

    Robert, by friends do you mean real friends or your billions of “facebook friends”.

    if the former, then 4 links won’t really do. if the latter – are you running some sort of directive cult?

  13. Fantastic news!

    Google Reader’s finally usable without Greasemonkey and Firefox. :D I love the “My Subscriptions” button available in reading pane mode.

    But, my one gripe: there isn’t a keyboard shortcut to open the little reading pane menu as far as I can see (because, unlike U, it doesn’t resize the reading pane).

  15. What made you choose Google Reader in the first place?

    I use Newsgator at the moment. I used to use desktop-based clients, but they took up too much space and for obvious reasons, things like Newsgator Online and Google Reader don’t.

  17. Oh, heh, I hadn’t even noticed the search bar. What I’d noticed was that they finally figured out how to count higher than 100.

    The only thing I didn’t like about it was that because of the way the URL works, instead of highlighting the address in the toolbar and hitting enter to refresh it to cause it to clear memory once a day, I need to hit F5 instead.

    Although who knows? Maybe this version actually won’t be as much of a memory pig.

  19. I switched from FeedDemon to google reader after reading your blog a few months ago and it has been a great change and now search is just outstanding!!

    Thanks Scoble, I know you have been clamoring for search within reader as have many others but your voice tends to get heard more than us so I’m sure it helped.

  21. Thank you so much for making a word processor that allows me to save in MS word. I just got a new computer and the fucker wont let me send a regular word document as an attachment. The new MS 2007 is too new…my teacher couldn’t open it and I was really flustered…then you saved my ass and I got a 95%…thanks google…I love ‘blackle’ too and google earth :)
