Have you tried http://www.feedrebel.com? I've been using it for a while now, it's fast, supports folders and has the required shortcuts to browse through articles quickly.

This is really a bad moment for me to say good bye to google reader. i have all my links saved in it. I never tried any other service. Thanks for the options given. i will try it one by one.

If NetNewsWire had syncing ready today they would have been heros. It seems nobody wants to leave them, but a lot of people are because they have to. They could have given me buggy sync in a beta and at least I would think they were trying. I'm not putting my money down on the promises of sync.

If you are looking for a desktop alternative, check out Words 2.2: http://www.newnet-so.../blog/words220. Its free while in Beta. And looks awesome.

Hi, great roundup! You could also give http://flowreader.com/ (Disclaimer: I'm from the FlowReader team). FlowReader is a personal reader for RSS and social feeds from Facebook and Twitter. We just recently launched and are still working out a few kinks, but our team would love to hear any feedback people might have!

I stopped reading the RSS feeds a few weeks ago. Most of my feeds were Mac related anyway. I feel defeated in a way. Google. You are no longer quite as trustworthy and I'm reluctant to rely on anything else from you!

I'm using The Old Reader. Very similar layout to Google Reader. Easy peasy to set up and use. If you're someone who just wants to see all your updated blogs in one place, it's worth a shot. http://theoldreader.com

I like RSS Bot for the Mac. It is pretty clean and gives one the option to use Readability when clicking on a feed item which opens up the article in a clean format.

Just got an iPad I have my mac with net newswire and I exported the google reader feeds now how do you get them into something like net newswire or some other rss reader app on the iPad as google reader is dead and I don't see a way to import feeds from something else.
Thanks
