Google Reader is an aggregator to enable you read Atom and RSS feeds online or offline, and released by Google in October 2005 on beta status, followed by major revisions to its user-interface in September 2006, and in 2007 it was out of its beta status.
The application enables users subscribe to feeds with the use of its search or by entering in the URL of the RSS or Atom feed, after which new posts from those feeds are shown on the left-hand side of the screen. It also allows for organizing the feeds by date or relevance, or with labels. And it allows sharing with friends and other without sending the links by email or other means as it used to be.
The mobile interface for Google Reader was released in May 2006, and it can be used by devices that support XHTML or WAP 2.0, and it was followed up by a version for iPhone users. Also, Google Reader is incorporated within Mozilla Firefox and the browser SeaMonkey’s feed recognition which can automatically redirect users to Google Reader’s Add Subscription screen.
