Has anyone noticed that the little plus signs don't really do anything for google blog posts? I have several google blog feeds on my personalized homepage and clicking on the plus sign does not give me a small summary like it does with all of the rest of my feeds.

Google's new feature doesn't work for ATOM feeds. Blogspot blogs (and Google's official blogs are hosted on Blogspot) use ATOM feeds by default.

Another bug:
Google shows the whole content of the feed item for Feedburner feeds. Like my feed or Slashdot's feed.

Of course it works, just as RSS feeds.
Your many bugs may come from Opera...

Google.

The feed for googleblog.blogspot.com/ is googleblog.blogspot.com/atom.x ... , which is an ATOM feed. If you add it to Google IG, you don't see any snippet. The RSS feed googleblog.blogspot.com/rss.xm ... doesn't work either.

That means Blogger must do something wrong with their feeds.

Oh ok, it's (ONE OF THE MANY) bug(S) from the new version of Blogger.
anyway, it seems that I have hacked this file on Zorgloob (powered by Blogger via FTP) and it works fine.
