Google Reader goes international, loses beta tag

Google ReaderGoogle Reader has come out of beta. That's right, Google now has at least two services that don't have a beta tag, their search engine and Reader. Gmail, which predates Google Reader still wears a beta label even though it's been a while since we've seen any major new features.

But just a few weeks after Google added the much sought-after search function to its RSS Reader, the company has decided the product is all grown up and ready to go out into the world. And we mean that literally, Google has added support for new languages including French, Italian, German, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. There's even a UK English version.

But we have to say, there does seem to be a bit of extra white space at the top left of the screen where the familiar "beta" once rested.
