G Reader shuts down in a week.
I’ve been trying Feedly, but and have been trying to love it, but it’s annoying in a couple of significant ways.
Firstly, after clicking on a feed, I want to use the cursor down or Page Down key to move through the items in that feed. Unlike G Reader, Feedly doesn’t put the focus in the right place. Drives me up the wall.
Secondly, it’s embedding itself in multiple places in Chrome. First it put an icon of itself in the bottom-right of every browser tab (which even shows up in print outs, would you believe?)… and just in the last few days it’s started creating its own tab, which doesn’t even have a close icon on it. Is this conceited or what?
Frankly this does not bode well for my future with Feedly, if they’re going to take liberties like this.
Perhaps it’s time to look at alternatives — even if they don’t have accompanying smartphone/iPad apps.
Anybody tried The Old Reader?
Any other good ones which are as close to Google Reader as possible?
