ChameleonReader Learns Your Bloglines Habits

I got an email this evening from a nice chap called Josh Tyler. He's written an app with a slightly dodgy interface, for overlaying Bloglines.

It's called Chameleon Reader and will apparently learn from your habbits, and organize your feeds for you. He explains it better than I, so here's an excerpt from the email:

The basic idea is that it learns from your behavior, figures out which feeds are your favorites, and helps you find them (highlights them, moves them to the top, etc.). It's a way of managing hundreds of feeds without having to scroll through pages and pages.

Personally, I don't think folders are the answer, since they require too much manual intervention. Also, it finds "top links" -- sorta like Blogdex or Bloglines Top Links, but for your feeds only. Finally, I think it's a nicer, friendlier UI. The functionality is limited, since I didn't want to reinvent the wheel, but rather focus on the innovative parts.

I've switched from Bloglines to the Sage plugin for firefox, and apparently you have to use it for a while to see it really in action, so if anyone uses bloglines and wants to take it for a spin i'd love to hear how it does....

Some of those features sound superb, though i can't help being a little sceptical as that's a pretty impressive feature set....
