The reason for switching is mainly that I wanted to see if Scoble was right when saying that NewsGator was better than Bloglines.
These are my impressions so far:
- Importing was easy, no points to NewsGator here, since I haven't tried it the other way around. (maybe a point to BlogLines.com for making my feeds available as an OPML file)
- I like the user interface in NewsGator
- NewsGator seems to be slower than BlogLines. This might have something to do with the fact that while BlogLines uses frames NewsGator is refreshing both the feed-list and the contents while I'm reading (what about some AJAX-tech-tricks here?)
- I miss the shortcut keys from bloglines. I keep on pressing 'r' to refresh the feed list.
I'm still keeping my BlogLines account :-) The next weeks will show who won.
