Just when I was beginning to think of Google Reader
as cobweb-ware, the Reader team has announced a nice update
to the web-based
newsreader. It's nothing earth-shattering, but they have made labels much easier to use with a new drop-down menu as
well as a keyboard shortcut that makes adding labels lightnight-fast for us keyboard junkies. There are also some
miscellaneous features and additions like better error messages and improved sorting and filtering. It's still not as
robust as some web-based services but every improvement helps.
