Today Google announced a web-based feed reader called Google Reader at the Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco. Google Reader makes it easy to find and subscribe to online feeds to help users organize and stay up-to-date on the ever-increasing amount of web information they consume on a daily basis.
The product features a clean, easy-to-use interface and includes a comprehensive feed finder, multi-media feed displays, and algorithms that can assist users with automatic content prioritization, plus easy sharing capabilities with email and "blog this" features.
Reader is part of Google’s ongoing effort to combine Google functionality with personalized web content to make information more relevant and useful to users.
