The end of Google Reader

By Razib Khan | June 26, 2013 2:58 am

If you read this weblog via its RSS Feed and Google Reader you are probably aware that you will have to stop doing this by July 1st. Here’s a an article with links to replacements. I will enter into the record that I now use Feedly and I don’t miss Google Reader at all.

More from TechCrunch.

MORE ABOUT: Google Reader

    I use Google Currents, and think it’s the natural upgrade – you can add all your existing RSS feeds from Google Reader, plus a whole lot more…

  • Joe Q.

    Hm, I didn’t even know Google Currents still existed — hope they don’t kill that one too! Anyway, I am using Feedly as well, and while it’s pretty good, some aspects seem more “clunky” than Google Reader.

    The Digg Reader is supposed to come out today. Looking forward to seeing what that looks like.

    I use Feedly, and it is working horrible right now. At least for me. I cannot see this your post in Feedly, for example, you have not wrote it yet. But you wrote it already in Google Reader.

    Hope they will overcome this later.

    There’s some informative discussion of this at Jamie Zawinski’s blog.
