Back to Bloglines

I just went back to Bloglines. I know I said before that feeds are a river and Bloglines was drowning me, but after a few months, Kinja just isn’t doing it for me, plus, like Google Reader, it lacks batch editing capabilities, which is a real pain when you want to remove or recategorize a whole bunch of feeds. Worse, the javascript-heavy interface takes a while to load, with all the yellow fades and curve-cornered layers — especially on the “manage favorites” page — and it was hindering rather than helping my feed management labors.

So, it’s back to the frames-based, occasionally clunky Bloglines UI. To stem the sometimes overwhelming tide of content, I’ve switched the feed display to “Titles Only,” making it easier to filter through stuff. Kinja stays as backup.

I do not like AJAX.
