Fastladder July 5, 2007Posted by fukumimi in Internet, IT, Japan.
Livedoor is attempting to go global with its new Fastladder RSS reader, which is basically a repackaged version of its existing Livedoor Reader for the local market.
It is basically a generic on-line feedreader. I noticed that OPML imports were slower than on some other on-line feedreaders I’ve imported my OPML files to in the past, perhaps because Fastladder doesn’t yet have much of a following yet and hasn’t got the relevant feeds cached.
Apart from the amusement factor of the uncomfortable English on show, the only slightly interesting point is that they show how many other Fastladder users have subscription to each of your subscribed feeds (social bookmarking of feeds).
Not sure there is enough here to make a huge impact on the already crowded landscape.
