I have been a fan of Google Reader, the online (and now offline too) RSS aggregator and reader. I have around 100 RSS subscriptions in Google Reader and it works great for me. Saves a lot time with the list and expanded views, and the keyboard shortcuts.
Google Reader keyboard shortcuts help you quickly explore your reading list without moving back and forth between your keyboard and mouse. Yeah, we are so lazy even to remember all the keyboard shortcuts. Just press ? in Google Reader and it displays the shortcuts right within the Reader! It’s cool. If you want to take a print out, you can open the shortcut help in a new window and print it out.
Do you use Google Reader? Why not give it a try, start with adding teck.in feed? Don’t worry, Google Reader has matured from the list of Google beta product.
I am copying the shortcut help below, from shortcut FAQ from Google help, for your easy reference.
