Editors' Review


This Web-based counterpart to desktop RSS aggregators lets you read your feeds while surfing, effectively sidestepping the need to manage another application on your PC.

The download installs the Bloglines Browser Plug-In to the RSS aggregator button on Internet Explorers toolbar. Clicking the button added Bloglines to the dropdown list of subscribing options when we viewed a sites list of newsfeed headlines. By opening an account at the Bloglines site much like opening a Yahoo Mail or Google account we were able to view the latest headlines of our subscribed feeds, and set up a search phrase for future headlines from any news sites, both those to which we were subscribed and those we weren't.

The site is well-designed and easy to navigate and use. Configuring and modifying our settings was simple to do. The service is available in a variety of languages, can be used on mobile devices, and also can follow podcasts, e-mail newsletters, blogs, and so forth. All the functionality and ease of use reflects the Bloglines' founders experience in a previous successful online venture (ONElist, now operating as Yahoo Groups).

If you prefer working online instead of dealing with a stand-alone newsreader or using an e-mail client as your newsreader, Bloglines may well be the answer for you. We recommend it for any level of user.
