We all use feed readers to keep up with the steady flow of information and news from various sites .

While Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox have an default RSS reader built in , Google Chrome does not have one yet as google wants it’s users to use Google Reader instead . Google Reader is good but yet it is not even close to the power of Feedly.

 

Feedly , in many ways is an excessively simple and beautifully constructed webapp that will sweep you off your feet . It is fast , shows posts from facebook  , twitter , youtube wonderfully.It syncs well with google reader also .

It is available for your iPhone , iPad  , Andriod , Chrome , Firefox .

It differs from the typical feed reader because , it needs an browser extension to be installed for it to work as it uses HTML5 heavily . The iOS apps for feedly are also breathtaking .

Design features :

Feedly in FirefoxThe image in the left (click to zoom ) is the home screen of feedly , it is beautfully designed and it shows all the new and unread posts .

On clicking a post , the post expands in feedly itself and instant sharing of the post to facebook , twitter , stumbleupon , gmail can all be done with a touch of a button

 

 

The sites from which you recieve the posts can also be categorised into different categories . Categories in feedly

You can see the different stuff I have . The feedly extension for FireFox and Chrome adds an hovering button in each site to allow us to easily subscribe and share that post .
