Here, is a list of 5 free web alternatives for Google Reader.
Google has recently announced that it’s going to shut down its most popular (and undoubtedly the most useful) web service: Google Reader. This news has not only left everybody in shock, but also increased the need of finding some good alternative for their RSS subscriptions. So here we are, with 5 free web-based RSS Readers that will serve as good alternatives for Google Reader.
Google Reader is a popular RSS or web feed reader that lets you subscribe for different websites and web blogs and read news updates from them regularly. Unfortunately, Google has decided to kick-off this amazing service due to its declining usage (something which is hard to believe). So it’s time to find some good alternatives for Google Reader that will help you manage all your RSS subscriptions from a single and organized platform.
To help you out, we have found a bunch of free and reliable web alternative for Google Reader. Have a look and try them out!
Feedly is one of the most popular web service that lets you read, organize, and share content from your favorite websites. It’s available both as a web app and downloadable app for iOS and Android platforms and provide efficient ways for Google Reader users to keep intact with their RSS Feeds.
Another interesting fact about Feedly is that it’s constantly working on building a Feedly clone for Google Reader API to seamlessly integrate feeds from your existing Google Reader account once the service shuts down. Feedly will implement this by interacting with your Google Reader account and storing feeds on its own back-end.

Next is NetVibes, another free web reader that lets you subscribe to RSS Feeds from different Web Pages and Blogs. It offers a Google Reader like interface and acts more like a social-media dashboard app with its iGoogle-style widget.
NetVibes is a simple and reliable monitoring tool for reading web content. However, it’s not as keyboard-friendly and fast as Google Reader. Still it offers nice ways to pick widgets and RSS Feeds from a huge selection of interests, and organizes them in the way you want. Click the link below to try out NetVibes.
