About a month ago I wrote a post about RSS being alive in which I wrote the following regarding the impact of Google’s decision to shut down Reader.
Several companies (including Feedly and Digg) have already jumped into the fray to announce their support for new RSS news reading applications. Because while the reader market is small potatoes for Google it represents an opportunity for a much smaller company.
Since then I have tried out a few potential alternatives to Google Reader, including Feedly and Feedbin. If someone asked me which ones were the best alternatives to Google Reader right now I would say that those two are the best options, but for the moment I have chosen Feedbin as my primary RSS reader to consume feeds on a daily basis. I’ll explain why I have made that choice in the paragraphs below.
