Example interface

I couldn't resist and am demoing up an example interface for a hypothetical web-based RSS reader.
Features to note:
  • Filters on the right work just like Google's tag concept. Each RSS feed can have multiple "tags" associated with it
  • The major filters are at the top with more specific ones listed at the bottom.
  • Specific filters can be joined together with the current filter(s) displayed at the top
  • The current feeds to display will be shown in a two column format with the source and date listed
  • A link to the original URL should exist on the main heading of each feed item
  • All of this would be dynamic - no page reloads
  • If a feed has a new listing, it will magically appear via XMLHttpRequest (or perhaps mod_pubsub)
The bottom right (where I have left the links) will probably house some utility functions such as; manage feeds, manage tags, export feeds

PS: Notice the similarities in design? ;)

The demo is here
