It’s much improved, both graphically and in ease of use. There are a lot of blogs I like to keep up with but who don’t update that often (hello Robbie!). Sticking them all into Google Reader means I don’t miss new posts if I get bored of checking a seemingly frozen page.
The other nice little touch is that you can share fave blog items and then Reader makes a new page of your articles. Yep, it’s a blog about blogs, a metablog. Click here to see what I’ve been reading lately. Or you can click direct to an article via the little green widget on the right.
