Google Reader New Look
Just when I was getting used to a feed stream, Google Reader rips off Bloglines and goes with folders. Not that I mind, of course: folders give me more of a bird's-eye view of things. And the Ajax is still smoother than Bloglines' frames. Having items marked read as you scroll through them is more useful than I first thought.
Here's a video from one of the engineers explaining the new look for n00bs. Gotta love how he never even says the word feed.
The Google Reader widget on my Google Personalized Homepage stays a stream. If a stream works anywhere, it's there.
