I think that the online client looks pretty nice, but it isn’t something that I would really use. Their online service is still important because they have a downloadable feed reader application for both Mac (NetNewsWire) and PC’s (FeedDemon). Neither of those applications are free, but they are some of the best software feed readers currently available on the market…and they are setup to synchronize with the NewsGator service.
Right now Google Reader is my preferred feed reader when I’m away from my personal computer, but they too have some things that could be fixed. A few weeks back I remember reading an article by Curtiss discussing the five things that Google still needs to fix/implement in Google Reader so that it is more usable. The one thing that I agree with the most is the need for a notification program so that I know when Google has found some new posts for my subscriptions. Even Bloglines has a notifier available so I think Google Reader needs this as well.
Let us know in the comments below what you use to keep track of your feeds, whether it be an application or an online service.
