Reminder to use Google Reader

As you may have gathered from my defense of desktop email clients, I prefer desktop apps to webapps any day of the week. Even if the app is powered by a web data service (like Gmail), desktop applications can take advantage of the massive computing power of your machine and optimize the user experience in a way that HTML-based webapps simply can’t.

One of my favorite web apps is Google Reader, Google‘s fantastic RSS news feed aggregation service. It makes it possible to subscribe to all your favorite feeds, share, star, and comment on them socially. Now, GRUML optimizes that experience for your desktop, creating the perfect RSS reader.

Don’t take my word for it. Try it out for yourself!
