Sigh, I use it so I can see the latest updates on sites without having to visit each site, I can't be the only one as Google try to make out. Must be cutting it due to no profit on it, more money to be made on Google+. :/

I use it religiously to skim hundreds of news stories per day, and visit the really important stuff. In fact I got this BT news item through it - ironic!

I've had a quick look at feedly, but they don't seem to have the feature I use, which is simply to browse all my feeds, in one list, from oldest to newest.
The Old Reader seems to do that, but they're overloaded so I can't import my subscriptions right now.

I can't see google backing down on this, but I hope they do.

This is so annoying.. so the two Google products I use most (iGoogle and the Reader) are both being killed off.. Seem like very odd decisions. Going to have to get used to internet life without Google!

Click on All ? At least in my case Feedly for Chrome does that :

Downgrading the sharing was one thing... but killing it off. What the hell?! I guess I'll find an alternate site to keep open all day and use religiously.... thanks Google!

I am so not okay with this.

If they really go through with this instead of turning around after the internet outcry, I'm changing my email provider. **** Google.

Ah, that option isn't there in the Firefox version, but I eventually worked out that you can order the Latest option to show in that way.

Well, this sucks. Reader represents most of the time I spend on google sites. which is saying something considering I have 2 gmail accounts I use regularly.

I've been using Reader to keep up with Bittech and others for years now.
I love G+ more than most, but unless they integrate rss somehow, I still need Reader.

Trying out Feedly.

Reader is damn hard to replace though.
