the beta of Google Reader, their entry in the RSS/syndication feed reader sweepstakes. It looks fabulous, but it’s pretty blah overall. It offers no new features or innovations of any kind, that I can tell, and the usability is crap. Pretty much UNusable, overall. They break the browser and force you to use their crap navigation just so you can see their supposedly tasty Ajax goodness. Give me a nice interface, but don’t break my scroll wheel! What is it, 1996?
