Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

Excellent for your RSS Rated 4 out of 5 stars

When I heard that Google was shutting down their Reader application, I looked up a couple Reader alternatives, but this was the one that stuck. Not only are you able to directly import your entire Reader subscription from Google, but it's setup is practically identical to Google's Reader, if not better with some slight tweaks to make the experience more interesting (Honestly, Google's plain black and white design for Reader made things a bit boring to actually read through).

Hotkey shortcuts like hitting "j" and "k" to navigate through different entries remain, for those that used it in GReader, though I have noticed that if you're backtracking through a feed, the j/k navigation will automatically go to the next entry in reference to the entry you clicked on that has the latest time stamp on it. So, people like me that occasionally go through their feeds rather sporadically should probably just stick to manual clicking, which isn't the worst thing out there.

My one complaint would be that clicking outside the area of the article you're reading automatically closes it. It's not all that big of a problem, but I have accidentally closed on a YouTube video I was watching in the article a few times because of this.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (10.2).
