The closest i could think of is using a RSS client – Uri Herrera May 23 '11 at 0:11
I already use rss for quite a while now, the reason i want this kind of application is to help me find you sites worth adding to my google reader account – Chriskin May 23 '11 at 0:18
Stumbleupon? It's a toolbar which you can thumbs up sites and thumbs them down dependant on whether you like them or not, clicking stumble takes you to a new site from one of the categories you select when you create an account, it sounds like this might be what you're looking for, I say give it a try. Otherwise you could try google reader with your feeds and after a few weeks look in recommended items, generally it's pretty good at finding blogs I would be interested in – Will Jul 15 '11 at 19:11

I am looking for Zite on Ubuntu myself. And have failed so far to find something.

However, there are some news aggregators outthere that have nice little web-functionality which can easlily be used with your browser. It's not quite the zite experience but similarily helpful

E.g. Tweeted Times:!/cvhhh or

As an alternative to my idea i found the "sparks" feature of Google+. It might not be a desktop application (yet - i think they said they have plans to make a desktop app) but it works just fine. Until a better idea is found, i'll consider this one an "answer"
