Earlier this year, Feedly launched a new RSS cloud platform to replace Google Reader, garnering the service more than eight million new users.

Today the company has introduced Feedly Pro, a new feature that it is beta testing. Feedly Pro, which will be priced at $5/month, comes with a number of premium features for users:

- Article search: Search within your Feedly feeds
- Https: Add a layer of security to your Feedly browsing
- Evernote: One-click save to any of your Evernote notebooks
- Premium Support: Get bumped to the front of the support line

According to the site, the proceeds from Feedly Pro will be used to fund hardware requirements and additional Pro features that will be added in the future. Feedly desktop will receive Pro first, but eventually, it will be extended to the company’s mobile apps.

At this point in time, the 5,000 limited edition subscriptions (lifetime versions priced at $99) the company offered for the current test of Feedly Pro have sold out, but Feedly plans to offer additional Pro accounts later this year.

The Feedly service can be accessed via the website, or through the company’s free mobile app. [Direct Link]

So people still use rss? I thought it went the way of the widget and ping friends.

The more sites you follow the more useful RSS becomes, especially if some sites don't update that often.

It was a serious question. I'm just wondering if there are real people out there who completely shun Google, including the search engine (which could be hard since many websites use Google for their own search function). And if they still do, what makes them thing Google (or any other search engine) isn't tracking every site they go to regardless of "signing in" or not. The only way to skirt this would be to use a public computer for all your web searches.

Here`s your serious answer:

I use the Google search engine every day. I do not have a Google account. Those are two different things.

Until someone comes up with a better way to follow news on 68 different web sites... RSS it is. :)

I agree if you just follow a couple sites, Twitter can get the job done, but for large numbers of sites I have not found anything close to what RSS can do. Particularly when coupled with Yahoo Pipes.

Aside from article search, none of the "pro" feature seem all that valuable. Features like Evernote can be done by using 3rd party apps. I would like to support Feedly but $60/year seem rather excessive.
