Google Reader Apocalypse

Jun 25, 2013

Jamie Zawinksi has absolutely nailed my experience with the Google Reader apocalypse. Except for the fact that I’m okay with reading my feeds in a browser. In fact, aside from my iPhone, I prefer it.

Feedly sucks. It’s difficult to use, inconsistent, and ugly. I know some people think it’s pretty, but it’s not. This is not moving the RSS platform forward. It’s just keeping it level. It’s the same thing. No, scratch that, it’s worse. I liked Google Reader better.

That small rant about how awful Feedly is, is nothing compared to Jamie. I laughed the whole way through reading the article. It’s worth five minutes. You’ll probably need readability or something similar. The site is hard on the eyes.
