Google Reader

Google Reader allows you to collect subscriptions: new feeds, blog posts and comments, and podcasts into a front page that acts like a control panel. Below is a screen shot of a Google Reader screen. The subscriptions are organized in folders on the left and the actual items (e.g. blog posts, new articles) are on the right.
