By now, most of the web is abuzz with news of Google axing its Google Reader, which is a platform that most bloggers, including me, identify with. I’ve lived with Google Reader open while I worked for several years, either via FeedDemon and also directly. With the demise of Google Reader, Nick has also decided to kill FeedDemon, most of you might already be hunting for alternatives.
I’m sure most of you have heard of it already, but FeedDemon now includes synchronization for Google Reader as well as the already existing Newsgator, which has been a part of it ever since the beginning. I’ve been using FeedDemon for several years now and the best part of it is the complete synchronization it has with Newsgator. I’ve been running the beta versions and it’s turning out better with time.
There are quite a few RSS readers out there and after taking a look at a few of them I stumbled upon FeedDemon. To be more specific FeedDemon 3, which is currently in it’s beta state and is available for download here. For those who have never used FeedDemon, it is a really neat and clean RSS reader that makes keeping track of and reading your feeds extremely easy.
