Love the look, and it seems like a fine product, but I use RSS so I can avoid loading full websites -- I have severe bandwidth limits from my satellite Internet provider. So having to click through to the full page to read entire articles was a non-starter for me. Not your fault, but my search for a Google Reader replacement continues. Good luck!
