Bloglines vs. Newsgator

After one week using Newsgator I have finally decided to switch back to Bloglines. The main reasons are:

  • Speed – Newsgator isn’t using frames, so loading each page also reloads the structure of my feeds. Bloglines uses framesets and doesn’t need a whole lot of refreshing to work.
  • Missing functionality – Newsgator’s clippings doesn’t work in the UK version (where I’m registered), and although I found a posting about this in one of the forums, nothing has been done to fix the problem. Clipping IS working in Bloglines.
  • Text size – Newsgator has a default text size that is unchangable. This makes reading my blogs tiring for my eyes. Bloglines lets me use my browser to change the text size.
