Popurls: A One Page Web-based Feed Aggregrator

Popurls is a very well-designed site that aggregates headlines from over 15 different sites like slashdot, metafilter, del.icio.us, and digg. It even has Youtube videos, flickr images, and cartoons. The best part is the simple, one-page design that saves time and effort when trawling through the latest news and buzz.

Below the search box are buttons you can click on to customize the order of the feeds using a neat dragging interface and a "switch to buzzmania" button that triples the number of headlines for power users.

Check out Popurls.

You might also want to check out http://www.GetMyScoop.com. It is a newly created web-based customizable feed aggregator that also allows users to post their own content. I am the owner and developer of the website so if you are wondering about my objectivity of this post, I encourage you to visit the site yourself and check out its features. I built it as a proof of concept to learn first hand what you can do nowadays with very limited resources (only myself working evenings on and off for about 6 months). If you have any feedback, please use the "contact us" page on the website to get in touch with me. Popurls was one of the inspirations. My aim was to create a website that is completely free to use and empower users to the fullest extent possible in giving them the freedom they deserve with regard to both consuming and creating Internet content. I hope this goal is achieved as the website gets more and more popular and as I add more features in the future. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
