Here’s my attempt at a big list of Google Reader alternatives. If you have anything to add, please either contact me or comment at the end of this article.
This is an account of some of what I’ve done to replace this important and useful tool during these months – and a tool I eventually settled on.
Today, I gained access to the beta of AOL’s new RSS reader simply called AOL Reader. Based on screenshots I’ve seen, AOL’s interface looked very similar to Google Reader’s and I was hoping this tool would stack up well as a worthy replacement.
Today, an invite came in for a new feed reader called FluxReader. While this is still in beta, and much will likely change, but I wanted to get a good feel for whether this tool could be a worthy Google Reader replacement.
The question is, was Google Reader loved by its users? Well, one measure of how much a product is loved could be how much users actually use it.
I checked to see if it was April 1st (nope) and then sat stunned that Google would retire Reader without alternatives. While Google isn’t offering it, I’m going to give you some alternatives to try and help ease the sting.
Google Reader users are among the most blighted (and many would say the more well-informed).

The RSS Reading “community” is still talking about the proposed changes in Google Reader (expected today). I, too, am interested in how this new Reader product is going to look and wether this new product will be usable as the Google Reader we’re used to today. I did want to talk about what this will mean for me, an avid Google Reader user and why the kind of FUD out there is probably not warranted. Heck, there’s even a petition to stop these changes.
RSS is dead. Or so they say. I disagree, but then that’s not what this blog is about. If you’re a regular user of Google’s Reader utility, you are more than aware of some if it’s limitations as well as benefits. On of the core uses to Google Reader is to read a heck of allot of news items in a very short amount of time. Today, I wanted to look at some of the methods I use to get through lots of Google reader items – as fast as possible.
