Subpug — A New Way to Read your Favorite Websites

Subpug — A New Way to Read your Favorite Websites

Subpug is a fantastic new web service that lets you follow your favorite websites and blogs like never before.

Although primarily a RSS Reader, Subpug does not require that you sign up for the service to use it. In fact, Subpug makes it incredibly easy to quickly add your favorite sites and begin consuming the content they produce. Your subscriptions are saved in your browser, so you can begin where you left off. Not only does Subpug lay the content out in a gorgeous and clean way, it even pulls the comments from that article and any tweets referencing it and displays them next to the article. And it’s superbly executed.

Subpug’s whole style and aesthetics and beautiful and well done. It even features handy keyboard shortcuts, so all you native RSS readers can feel at home. A few quick minutes with it and it has me impressed. If you want to move to a different device, you can just get a link emailed to yourself that you can open on that new device and find all your subscriptions in place.

Note that since Subpug pulls the data from RSS feeds, it’ll only be useful with sites that support full-text RSS feeds. However, as pictured in the screenshot above, Subpug cleans out all the ads and clutter from the article and displays it in a beautiful and elegant way, so it’s more than enough of a reason to go ahead and give it a try. Oh, and did you notice the cute logo they’ve got going there?
