I mentioned in the past that I had been evaluating Google Reader as an alternative to Newsgator. When I repaved my machine to move to Vista, I decided to skip the newsgator installation and take the plunge.

I'm happy to report it has been going well, and although I miss some of the Newsgator features, I now have a somewhat lighter Outlook around :-). One thing I missed from Newsgator was being able to "tag" (or add to a folder) a feed right away as I subscribed to it, but this week it just started happening with Google Reader:

Much better! The only thing I've noticed is that sometimes the Google Reader page won't quite load and some features just "don't work", but a refresh usually fixes that.
