Google announced their latest creation: Google New.

Nice but still missing a couple of things I would like to see:
I think a simple feed is a huge plus for Google New. You can manually subscribe to every product's blog feed. But you wouldn't be interested in all Google products therefore it's unlikely that you would find all feeds and subscribe to them, not to mention it's not easy to subscribe to all and even get to know if there is a new product.

So, if there is a feed for this, I might unsubscribe all Google feeds and use it only.

There is another a couple of interesting thing in the source code of Google New:

    <script src="/newproducts/js/modernizr-1.5.min.js"></script>

    <script src="/newproducts/js/main.js?10"></script>
  <!--[if lt IE 7 ]><body class="ie6"><![endif]-->
  <!--[if IE 7 ]><body class="ie7"><![endif]-->
  <!--[if IE 8 ]><body class="ie8"><![endif]-->
  <!--[if IE 9 ]><body class="ie9"><![endif]-->
  <!--[if (gt IE 9)|!(IE)]><!--><body><!--<![endif]-->

It uses Modernizr library and includes a messy code for IEs. IE always is so special, even within between its own different versions.
