Feed on Feeds is rough as a cob, it keeps triggering what I think is a Firefox frames bug and setting the feedlist frame's source to about:blank, the autodiscovery is far too simpleminded, taking the first application/rss+xml it finds, ignoring Atom and not offering a preview when there are multiple feeds to be found, there's some extra escaping going on in titles, so I read mnot’s Web log and some seriously twisted post titles from AKMA, the HTML (lack of) security is frightening, not being able to read or even subscribe to a feed when it's in a temporary not-well-formed state is a pain, and you know what? None of that matters, for three simple reasons: freedoms 1 through 3. I can fix the things that bother me, where I could never fix Bloglines; I can tell you how to fix them, or fix them for you; I can give Steve my fixes to put in a future version, or if worst comes to worst and we disagree about what it should do too completely, I can come up with a new name and head off in another direction.
Bloglines did many nice things for me, and I sincerely wish Mark all the best with Ask Jeeves, but it's time for me to see what I can do for Feed on Feeds, rather than wait for the monetization hammer to come down on Bloglines.
A culture used to being able to blip past with TiVo and ReplayTV is not sitting still anymore.
