Netvibes Revisited

Today, I decided to give Netvibes another shot. Mostly because I have another reason to evaluate Netvibes (work). The Netvibes user interface is exceptional. There doesn't appear to be a better AJAXian experience. The defaults were very accurate, I'm not sure why they thought I need Paris, France weather, but Canadian and in particular, hockey news, was right up my alley.

At some point, I realized that I wasn't even logged-in. I've always been extremely impressed with unregistered user customization. I then created an account. Wow! Quite an experience. These guys have user experience down to an art.

Before I signed-up, I imported my exported OPML RSS reading list from Rmail. Netvibes puts my list of subs in a folder in the left sidebar. Huh? Now what? I can't figure out what to do from here. It seems that I'd have to manually add each subscription to my tab. I then decided to delete my subscriptions and start all over. That option isn't available either. So, I imported the same OPML a second time, but this time I selected to add the feeds to a new tab. Waiting... waiting... waiting... bye! Support for RSS power users seems to be non-existent.
