Netvibes vs NewsBlur

Netvibes has become my favorite Google Reader alternative. I wrote about NewsBlur before but after using it for a month, I found the interface to not be that good. What irritated me about NewsBlur, Netvibes gets right.

  • NewsBlur opens up in the dashboard each time rather than the feed I was reading last.
  • NewsBlur won’t let me view the feeds in a list view with more than 20 items for feeds in a folder. This is due to their pay model.
  • NewsBlur limits you to a certain number of feeds, otherwise you have to pay $2 a month. Netvibes is free.

And just incase you were wondering about Bloglines. Bloglines is powered by Netvibes.
