Switched to Ask Jeeves' Bloglines - Love It

Feb 11, 2005 • 8:46 am | comments (4) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Ask.com - Ask Jeeves

I finally made the switch from My Yahoo to Bloglines as my primary RSS reader. I have always set my browser's homepage to My Yahoo, but when I switched to Firefox from Safari, by default, the homepage was the page that loaded. My Yahoo loaded slightly on the slow side and I wanted a page that loaded quickly. I tested Bloglines and it seemed to load fast, it also shows entries I did not read by session.

I find it very useful, just wish I can add a keyword search for news feeds like Yahoo! allows for Yahoo! News. Who knows, it might be part of bloglines.

And if your using bloglines, feel free to: Subscribe with Bloglines

You can add a keyword search feed in Bloglines. Just do a search for the term(s) you want, then click on "Save this Search". It will appear in your list of subscriptions as "Search Feed for <whatever>" and will be updated whenever Bloglines finds new blog entries that match your query!

Paul, does it search Google News and Yahoo! news, etc.?

No, a "saved search" in Bloglines only searches blogs that Bloglines is fetching. Maybe with the Ask Jeeves acquisition, they can work out a way to integrate with Ask's regular search engine to provide that kind of thing...

Yup, sounds good. Thanks Paul. Hope AJ listens to your suggestion.
