Your Ideal Portal?
The review of Protopage 2.0 concludes with a wistful and provocative comment:
It would be nice if someone could come-up with one useful product that would incorporate everything I use on daily basis. Maybe we’ll see something new in the future that will allow me to only use one web application instead of the 5-6 different ones I use now.

So, a Freshblog experiment. An open comment thread to list the things you'd want out of such a service. Some things I might choose would be displaying unread e-mail, newsfeeds, feeds from key blogs, perhaps "recently tagged" lists from or flickr.

Does the "stuff in boxes" format fall down when you ask it to handle more than a half-dozen feeds? Could you bundle the feeds to get more than one in a box? Would that refresh too often to make it useful?

If you're so inclined, comment away 'til we're resolved all relevant issues and designed the perfect portal...

Needs easy, one click feed add, perhaps even drag and drop a URL with automatic feed discovery (hey, I can dream right?). Even better, OPML import and export too.

Also needs to have multiple page capability so I can have a page for feeds and a page for newsy stuff.

And drag and drop taggable bookmarks too please. In fact, heck, why not make EVERYTHING taggable!
