That was more annoying than a slideshow.

Wait Fark isn't an RSS reader?

It's much less annoying if you go directly to the chart.

Feedly user for the past month, aside from some odd bugs (sometimes something that I marked to keep can't be unmarked) and some useless features that there's no native way to get rid of (all of the share icons - easily killed by adblock) I'm set.

I've been using Feedly since March and I like it a lot. Desktop -mobile syncing is great. Hopefully they will be able to keep it going.

Gotta pop into whatever anti-google threads I see and say that I like duckduckgo.  Just makes life a little easier.

Count me in as another Feedly convert. The desktop and mobile apps are a great substitute for Google Reader.

Or you could learn some basic HTML, CSS and JavaScript to write your own using the Google Feed API.

Or I could just use feedly and get back to important things, like posting in fark threads.

Heh, fair enough.

I got bored last summer and created my own version of fark using it as a learning exercise.

GR's still up as I type this. Have migrated to feedly, but keeping an eye on Digg Reader for when some new features come in.

No mention of InoReader or Go Read in TFA.

I'll be bouncing between those two and Feedly until I decide which I like best.

Feedly is terrible for me. I wanted a Google Reader clone, I found one at The Old Reader. Even behaves like Google Reader as you scroll through the familiar feed content view.

Nope, I set every single integration type setting I could find to "no" and they're still there.

Here are the icons I'm talking about.

This block of icons when in "preview?" mode (IE, clicking the title).
(Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Buffer, E-Mail, and tagging ... I use none of them).

www.lordargent.com

That icon all the way to the right (arrow pointing out of a square) also gives you a menu on hover (so a hover menu inside of a hover menu).
(Evernote, Instapaper, whatever whatever)

www.lordargent.com

And all of these icons when you're in the list view (I already adblocked these).

www.lordargent.com

// I wouldn't even care or mention it at all (since I would have adblocked them and never seen them again). but the URL for the images has changed before, and new images have been added. And also, the google+ one is using a DATA tag so it's a little more involved to block it than just right clicking.

I'm happy with TheOldReader. No real frills. No annoying wannabe magazine layout. The only thing it lacks is a decent way to share with social networks like Twitter or Facebook, but it's easy enough to just open the link in another tab and copypasta the URL. Otherwise the interface is pretty much the same as Google Reader's, so it works for me to catch my daily blogroll. :)
