Instagram Brings Image Feeds to the Web

As if we don't check Instagram enough from our smartphones, am I right?

Today, Instagram announced on its blog that users could visit Instagram.com, sign in to their account, and view their entire image feed homepage from a regular web-based Internet browser. It looks and feels a lot like it does on your phone, and you can add likes or comments to any photo in the feed.

One thing that CEO Kevin Systrom made quite clear in today's announcement is that a photo upload option for the web was not in the works. He said that while the team recognizes the importance of making Instagram content accessible from a variety of different platforms, "Instagram is about producing photos on the go, in the real world, in realtime."

Makes sense.

Nice work, Instagram. The new web-based feed looks great, and I'm sure a lot of users will be pretty eager to enjoy browsing their friends' from a bigger screen.
