Google Reader is set to shut down on July 1, and while several companies have stepped in to fill the void, Feedly has been one of the most successful replacements with more than 12 million users, up from four million before Google announced the end of Google Reader.

Feedly has transitioned from a simple RSS application to an RSS platform with the launch of a new web interface and a cloud platform that supports multiple third-party applications. Feedly Cloud supports one-click migration from Google Reader, which should make it easy for users to switch over without a hassle, and Feedly also provides a standalone web version that can be accessed from any browser.

As of today, feedly cloud is now live, providing a fast and scalable infrastructure that serves as the backbone to feedly, as well as a number of connected applications. Feedly cloud is open today to all users visiting http://feedly.com, providing a simple oneclick migration path from Google Reader.

Feedly cloud also powers a brand new, standalone Web version of feedly (no plugins or extensions needed), making feedly available from any browser, including Opera and Internet Explorer. This was one of the most requested features, and we are thrilled to deliver on this today.

To begin using Feedly, users can visit the website and migrate their Google Reader feeds to Feedly in just a few seconds. Feedly also has a universal app available in the App Store, which can be downloaded for free. [Direct Link]

I know they've promised a paid tier later this year, but moving from one free service to the next isn't appealing.

My concern too. I'm looking at Feed Wrangler. I also hope Reeder on the iPad or Mac is updated by July 1st.

No. They moved merchants to Google Wallet a long time ago. The killing off of Google checkout affected hardly any merchants since most had already moved.
Nope.
ATTENTION: On November 20, 2013, Google Checkout will no longer be supported. Sellers of digital goods on Google (Google Play, Chrome Web Store, Offers Marketplace and Google Wallet for digital goods) will automatically transition to Google Wallet and will not be impacted.

And in the next link:

Retiring Google Checkout Announcement

On November 20th, 2013, Google will shut down its Checkout product. Here’s how this may affect you:

* Merchants selling digital goods may transition to Google Wallet for digital goods
* Merchants selling through Google-hosted marketplaces (e.g. Google Play) will be unaffected
* Merchants selling physical goods will need to switch to third-party alternatives (see below)

This decision was not made lightly—ultimately, we decided our focus is best concentrated on other areas of the payments space. As we begin to sunset this product, you can expect to see a number of changes through 2013

They're also shutting down Google checkout and related services for physical products.

People were so mad at Google killing of Google Reader. But in their cruel ways, Google actually helped companies like Feedly push RSS readers even further. Feedly was good before the Google announcement but I don't think they would of spent as much development effort had it not been killed off. In the end, the users won.

You don't need an extension any longer. Remove the extension and go to this site to login.

Thanks, this worked great for me. removed the extension completely. Quite a good web app, and it solved my 2-step verification issue.

What I don't like is that I have to use an extension to run it. Not a fan of extensions. Especially since it bypasses Google's 2-step verification on my work computer.

When something is free, it means they will rope you in to charge..

http://feedly.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/178768-is-there-a-paid-version-


At the moment feedly is a free tool. There will probably be both a free and a paid version in the future.



Haven't heard anything from reeder which is a worry...
