Google Reader is officially dead. So what are you going to do now? Here are a list of some good free RSS readers.
If you want a full drop-in replacement, you can’t go wrong with Feedly. It’s a browser-based application that exists as an plugin or as an app for Apple iOS and Android. As a Webapp, it is synced across your devices, just like Google Reader.
If you only have one device or would rather just have a strait up RSS client here are a few of my personal favorites. For Windows, there is RSSOwl (PC). It is a basic RSS reader in written in Java. Vienna is probably the best reader for MacOS X. It features a “river of news” style feed that is customizable with various themes. On the linux front, there is Akregator on KDE and Liferea for GTK based Desktops such as Gnome and XFCE. These are both pretty capable readers and, if they aren’t already installed by default, are probably just an
yum command away.
If you want some more alternatives, here is a nice comprehensive list courtesy of GigaOM.
