A Better Bloglines?

I write an aggregator in a very half hearted sort of way.

I do this because I want certain things (chiefly fast start up times and a responsive UI) that other aggregators don't give me.

It turns out that this must be pretty much all I want, since I don't seem to be investing much time in improving it.

That said, even the current lameness that is FeedThing, is better (for me) than the incredibly mature and popular Bloglines.

However, I think I'd really like to use bloglines if I could. The fact that it's centralized means I could happily read at work and home without tedious synchronization issues.

What Bloglines really needs is a GMail / Google Suggest style kick up the backside in terms of usability. Joel Spolsky's 'Google Suggest raises the bar for web UIs' essay seems to have been getting a lot of blogger traction so I guess it's not too much to hope that someone, peferably Bloglines themselves, will bring some of this to bear on the thorny web aggregator problem.
