GMail has spoiled my mouse usage to a great extend. The recently introduced Google Reader was also having keyboard shortcuts. So I thought of changing to Google Reader from Bloglines. So I logged into Bloglines and I was about to export my subscription list as a OPML file but to my surprise I saw a bunch of hotkeys on its footer. Viola! Bloglines too have keyboard shortcuts and I dropped the idea of switching.You could see them in the footer.
Here is the list
- j – next article
- k – previous article
- s – next sub
- f – next folder
- A – read all
- r – refresh left pane
I wonder how things change suddenly when there is a competition. As I always used to say it’s the users who are going to get benefited when there is a competition.
Now I just can’t wait to see Bloglines redesign its interface and Google Reader introducing more cool features.
So because of Keyboard shortcuts Bloglines is still my feed reader.
