I know many people idolize Google (and this seems to give their employees unlimited license to blog with complete ignorance), but other than the search engine and Google maps, they don't have any good products. Everything else is typical Java web trash. Blogger seems to be suffering from more reliability problems lately, and the "publishing" process is annoying. Also I don't like the way newlines in the blog entry editor are converted to <br>'s; this makes it hard to paste HTML from another source, you have to merge it all into one line first (but there might be a way to disable this line break behavior). All in all, blogger might be great if you just want to post rants about how dynamically typed languages don't support refactoring (ahem), but it is a poor product overall. Still beats JRoller, though.
