    Unhappy Ask.com to shut down Bloglines

    Today, Ask.com announced that it will shut down Bloglines, a web-based personal news aggregator that can be used in place of a desktop client, on October 1.



    "Not an easy decision, especially considering our loyal and supportive (not to mention patient) user base, but, ultimately, the right one given business reasons simply too hard to ignore."

    Was anyone here using Bloglines?

    Yes, I've been using Bloglines for a number of years. I prefer a web interface as it is merely another open tab rather than another program running. Since I use Firefox as my preferred browser, I have found it very convenient. I like that it was easy to mark an item as unread so that it could be returned to at a later date. I don't care for the Google Reader interface.
