Looks like the growing pains for the Old Reader were simply too much, and they are taking the service private.

I know Feedly seemed to be the popular choice, but it just doesn’t work for how I deal with RSS Feeds. I like to be able to read my feeds in a web browser, across any device I might be using, multiple computers, iOS devices, etc. I don’t want apps, or browser extensions, I want a website I can get to from anywhere. That’s what I enjoy about the Old Reader, hopefully someone will take them up on the offer to take over the project.

In the mean time, any other suggestions?

    The Old Reader just moved to new servers. The water is fine. I’m seeing a few bugs, but nothing major at this point.

        Well, I was on vacation during the whole brouhaha so I missed that, only to be found trying to catch up on RSS reading after getting back from there with a severely degraded experience, and then they took it down and moved.
