Whatever is on the Internet agenda on top, Google will either push it or jump on the wagon as well. If you have missed a RSS feed-reader solution from Google so far, you will not miss it any longer, its' here as "Google Reader Beta".
Reader wants to make it easier to keep up with your ever-expanding reading list of content from across the web.
In the Google Reader search box, you can enter the name of a news source or topic (e.g., new york times or college football) and click "Search for new content."
When you find something that looks interesting click on its title to preview, after you can click on the subscribe button to get new items from that site whenever it updates. That's it.
If you know where a feed lives you can even enter the feed URL or you import your subscriptions from other programs. Last but not least you can export them as well.
After the successful launch of Google Blog Search, it was clear that it wont take too long, that Google will also release an online feed-reader and here it is. I've just tried it and it's working good, at least not bad. This will give NewsGator a hard time now, I'm sure.
As with most new services, also Google Reader is a (public) Beta, free to try. Now, if Google would take more care about mobile devices. Google Reader is another product which isn't mobile optimized.
