Google Reader gets a facelift

Ok, it is a slow news day. The online Google RSS reader has a new UI. Interesting news, but nothing to write a whole blog post about.

But I just saw an instance on how true my previous post on loss of control in web apps is.
When I read this story on download squad, the writer commented:

I happened to have Google Reader open when the changeover occurred, so I was able to grab the screenshot above showing the old new design on the left and the old Google Reader interface on the left. Honestly, found the old version familiar and comforting like a favorite blanket. But I’m sure I’ll get used to the new version soon. Getting rid of that 1000+ unread item count will certainly help.

This was exactly what I was talking about in my previous post.

The funny thing is that you cannot say “I will get used to the new version“.

The fact is you have to. .
