Bye, bye SmartClient, hello WebApp

Well I never thought I would say this but I’ve just bid goodbye to RssBandit my feedreader for the last three years and completely switched over to Google Reader.

The deciding factor was that I could read all my feeds from home. Google Reader is way fast over dial-up than RssBandit simply because the heavy lifting is done on the server.

If I had better bandwidth, would I have switched? I think it’s time someone wroteup a serious WPF XBAP that does feed reading. I’m betting on Newsgator to do this. Wait, that’s a super cool project to work on…
