Bloglines Goes International

The folks at Bloglines, a very popular web-based RSS reader and publisher, will today launch an international version with support for six languages, which they hope “may mark a shift in the expansion of blog/RSS reach and usage, heading down the global internet service road paved by eBay and Amazon, etc.”

The new internationalized web site, due to go live later today, offers the service in Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish. Bloglines reckons it “is the first RSS service to embrace consumers in multiple languages”. The internationalization includes the home page, navigation screens, and all the help menus and user tips.

Is Sauce Reader The One?

Further to my posting about searching for the perfect newsreader for RSS feeds, a lot of folk have pointed to the web-based Bloglines. It’s not bad, not bad at all, but I am not on a particularly reliable Internet connection so it is a tad too slow for me.

Nathan of Australian software company Synop, meanwhile, has quietly mentioned their own Sauce Reader, which I have to say on initial impressions looks like an excellent candidate. Indeed, this posting is being composed with it, so why not check it out yourself: Sauce Reader v1.6 is now available for download.

More as I get to play around with it some more, and chat to the creators.
