This week has been a pretty busy week for Googlers, as a lot of Google Services and Products have received considerable upgrades. The latest in line are Google Reader and Blogger. Google Reader has added a couple of handy features in Drag and Drop Support and Feed Recommendations, While Blogger has added support for OpenID in the comments.
The addition of Drag Drop will be greatly helpful to all those feed junkies out there, because from now, you don’t have to use all those menu’s to arrange your feeds in folders. The other new feature is Recommendations, which suggests feeds that you must read, on the basis of your Feed reading history and your Web Search History. The Feeds that Google Reader suggested for me, were not the kind of stuff I read regularly, so I guess the algorithms need some tweaking.
Google has also rolled out one significant update to Blogger today, and that is, you can now leave comments on blogs using OpenID. Until now you needed a Blogger or Google account if you didn’t want to leave an anonymous comment.
