But any other RSS Reader will be more functional that this Gmail Clips. But we can see this in another way Jared Jacobs(GMail Engineer) said
Ever get the feeling that your email experience is a little too predictable? I certainly have. Over the past few months, I've been working on Gmail Clips, a new feature that can help mix things up a bit.... I had a lot of fun working on this feature, and biased as I may be, I have to say I really love Clips. No new mail? Great, then I have time to read why pasta is made in different shapes. And even if I do have mail I should be getting to, maybe I'm in the mood to digress for a moment and investigate The Divine Secrets of the Cycle Commuter.
I too am feeling the same from many days, getting bored when I am not getting any mails. So this feature will be really great for guys like me.
But at the same time there are some questions with the privacy as well.
