New WordPress Reader

I just noticed my WordPress reader changed:

new reader

Now I have to admit the sleek lines are interesting, as well as the tags being clearly shown and the fact it now displays all the pictures in a post by thumbnails, with a link to the full gallery:

new reader1

However, I do not like the estimate time at all. Everyone reads at a different pace! What is up with that?? I feel really slow now…
I truly miss the X words left.

What do you think of these changes?

  1. I’m not at all a fan of the new reader! I don’t like that when I click the post, it doesn’t take me to the blogger’s actual blog. It just slides open into a plain white background with their full post. I liked being able to go to their blog. I felt like it was easier that way.

  2. I don’t like it either. I wanna know how many words the blog entry has… :/ But that put aside, when going through my reader I like to open every new entry into a tab. I use strg plus a mouse click to do that. This doesn’t function anymore; I just open the entry in the current tab.

  3. Why, oh why ndo software writers have a continual need to meddle and update something that’s working perfectly satisfactorily, and often introduce glitches, hangups and other unwanted things at the same time? I agree with most people who say the previous reader was fine and let you go straight to the original post if you wanted to.

  4. I’m having terrible trouble with it. I hate it. It’s not opening in a new tab, the comment space on some blogs is only one line, The “like” star is in a strange place. Some blog site come up normally, others are bizarre (based on settings that no longer work?). Most of the post no longer show the images. I feel like I’m missing posts that I would normally open. UGH. Thanks for letting me vent :-)
