Blogger Comments Improvements

Some weeks ago, I installed the HaloScan trackback system on my blog, but I decided to keep the Blogger commenting system rather than replacing it with HaloScan's because I was hoping to see Blogger improve in this area sometime soon. Turns out my patience was well worth it. According to Eric Case, who's a member of the Blogger team, here are some of the new improvements they released:

  • Comments are now listed on the comment posting form
  • Profile photos
  • Comments in popup windows
  • A Blogger account is no longer required to leave comments

Here's an article from Blogger Help on how to use the new system. At least now we know the Blogger team really is doing something. :-)
