Google says Reader link coming back
Google said in a tweet on Friday that removing the Google Reader link from the top of the Gmail homepage was a mistake and Tech Crunch reported that the company plans to restore the link some time Monday morning.
Google told Tech Crunch that the mixup happened when the company decided Google's photo service, Picasa, had become popular enough to merit inclusion in the top navigation menu. But instead of simply adding "Photos" to the menu, an error replaced the link to Google Reader and demoted it to the drop-down menu.
The Reader link at the top of Gmail (and other sites) was accidentally removed. It's coming back soon, we promise. Don't panic.
Google faced serious backlash from Gmail users over the change.
Either RSS isn't dying after all, or it's sure putting up a fight.
Do you use RSS? Did the Reader link mixup disrupt your daily routine?
