Feedly is a good RSS feed system that works almost the same and will not let you down. If however you got trouble using it then here’s how to get the maximum out of it. Feedly is a good option to consider because it is one of the few alternatives that are available to users on multiple platforms.
Step 1: RSS Sync with Chrome.
You can start off Feedly by authorizing its access to your Chrome Brower by installing it then enabling an extension. This will enable your browser with Feedly, when the Google RSS feed will breath its last.
Step 2: RSS Title View.
Although the main page and the Feedly feed can be good to look at, it will cause trouble when you are viewing items in bulk. For that you can change the view to titles will result in a layout that imitates the Google readers text only layout.
Step 3: Expand your screen for better visualization:
