What is more likely: Steve Rubel created 75 new posts in the last 4 hours, or Bloglines is getting its feeds in a twist? Much as I appreciate the creative output from Mr Rubel, my money is on Bloglines. Recently I have found that the feed reading portal has been all over the place in terms of quality and yet has stood still in terms of development.
The main quality issues I am aware of are:
- The interface tells me there are no new messages for a certain feed. However, when I click on the item, I do see new messages.
- The interface tells me that there are new messages for a certain feed and when I look, they are all old (as in the case above).
In addition to these quality issues, I'm somewhat at a loss to understand why they haven't developed any of their features or provided any new ones. Why am I still sticking around? Because Bloglines doesn't provide a simple way to export OPML!
