So with the imminent shutdown of iGoogle (http://google.com/ig) I was looking for a way to keep track of all my RSS feeds. I found igHome (http://www.ighome.com/) but was meh about it. This morning I saw mention of the Google Reader again.

*omfg*

It's actually waaaay nicer than iGoogle for tracking RSS feeds. So that said, what RSS/blogs do you track?

Welcome to 5 years ago. Google reader is fucking awesome. Newsrob is a fantastic offline reader, syncs well and everything.

yeah, I hate they are getting rid of iGoogle. I transitioned off it after my last laptop rebuild because I knew it was soon going away, but for years that was my start page.

Why would you not? You can go to one place and read what you want from sites you want, without having to navigate the web. No advertising, the ad images usually don't show in a reader.

I use it on my smartphone and I like that I can read whatever in a format that will look good on the screen.

I love RSS feeds, but I use the RSS reader in Outlook at work. It's just easier. :hs:
I miss open internet access at work. They've got us on lockdown here but you only show up on the report when you try to access a blocked page. Nobody reads the reports but they are generated weekly.

We have that too, but I'm a manager so they let me have free reign. Yay!
