Bloglines just opened the beta of its redesign. You can drag and drop your feed subscriptions into a personalized start page.
The usual suspects have reviewed the beta, with Read/Write Richard being the most thorough so far. What strikes me about the reviews is how gentle they are, given how little the new Bloglines stands out amidst the competition from Google and other rivals. Of course, it may be that the beta has more to differentiate it than I noted on my rather brief visit.
But I think it’s more likely that the usual suspects share my affection and nostalgia for Bloglines. It seems more than a year since I left Bloglines. But , for me and for many others, it was Bloglines that helped build up subscriptions.
