I’m back on Google Reader, and I can say that I have missed it.
I had been on the Flock train for about two months using it for blogging, feed reader, flickr posting, etc. Last week I kicked that habit after I finally just got too annoyed. It’s instable, crashing at least once a day and often times consuming > 50% of the processor (yes, I have plenty of hardware running it). I also found that it wasn’t purging posts from feeds it had downloaded thus taking up > 50gb of room on my hard drive. That’s when I was through.
Now I’m back on Google Reader, after the latest release. I am liking it thus far although it is still ugly it is functional.
As for Flock, it’s goodbye until a stable release if ever. I love the feature set but if it’s not gonna work…it’s not gonna work.
I have been tagging a lot of posts ‘shared’ in Google Reader, which is an excellent feature they have added. I used to tag posts and articles in delicious that I have read and wanted to share. Now, I click the share button and it aggregates to my website, a page Google set up, and is syndicated via ATOM in a feed.
