      1. Woo! Just a wonderful arclite! I think you must be interested in ! Nowadays, more and more and online and in our daily life. People wear them to take part in all kinds of party and other activities. Search “Sell Cosplay” in google and other search engines and get to know it.

      2. I’d like to have the option of rendiag the oldest entries first.And sometimes I read something interesting and have to opean my GoogleReader in order to share it with the people that follow me. I’d like to have some share in GoogleReader button, or at least share in Feedly , hoping that it will eventually become as popular as GR.I’ve using it for 2 weeks or so and I have about 200 or 300 feeds in 8 categories.

      4. I have not really cosehn what kind of specialists I would like to work under, but I do believe that it would be fun to work in a Psychiatrist’s office. I originally was going for my B.A. in Psychology, but switched. There are so many to choose from that sound absolutely interesting. Such as working under an Internist or going simple and working under a Family practitioner. Even Gerontologist sounds like fun. I love the “aging population” and they have stories and much to teach.For the moment I am going to take this degree one step at a time and try to find the place that fits me best.

    1. Craig. You are correct: the alpha version for not include the feedly mini toolbar. We are in the process of redesigning part of mini. One that is done and stable on Firefox we will look into the chrome aspects.

            1. Do you know ? I like it. My brother often go to the ietnrent bar to buy and play it. After school, He likes playing games using these with his friend. One day, he give me many and play the game with me. I came to the bar following him and found was so cheap.

              1. Hey feedly, prnice here, a long time feedly user. I really appreciate your efforts to make our lives easier, and just require a quick clarification regarding the bio’ module. I am one of multiple publishers on the pixldinc blogs (pixldinc.com/blog) but no bio info is displayed for any of the publishers except for one, that’s after placing the the ‘bio’ directive’ as instructed. Any chance of getting help? much appreciated.

  1. Yeah i’m REALLY missing that mini overlay box. I used to use it all the time to save a page as something in Feedly. Is there a way to do this with a bookmarklet?

  2. Seems adding feeds is broken through Chrome. Every time I try to add a source through Feedly in chrome it comes back saying “There is nothing that can be added to Feedly at blah” but put the exact same URL into the Add Source box in FireFox and it finds the feed and adds it just fine.

    1. same problem here – but for both Chrome and Firefox.

      I cannot add a feed which no one subscribed before… I have to manually go to the URL and customize the parameters to be able so subscribe…

  3. Thanks for the invitation!

    Running on Windows 7 RC:
    – fast, responsive, pretty
    – crashed once when subscribing to feed

    Running on Snow Leopard:
    – fast, responsive, very pretty
    – no crashes so far, miss the mini bar, shortcuts work only sometimes (but you already know this)

    Thanks again!

      1. – 2012-06-06 20:03:36 2L说得好简单啊….出现这个怎么解决啊Parse error: syntax error, ueenpxcted T_ENDWHILE in /home/a6150834/public_html/wp-content/themes/iphoto3.0.4/iphoto/functions.php on line 1挺喜欢这款的,帮个忙吧谢

  4. ESC doesn’t seem to minimize an opened article, and even clicking on the link to minimize seems to sometimes work and sometimes not.

  5. Thanks! Got it installed and working, looking forward to future updates. Feedly is just one of the few firefox addons I really ‘could not do w/o’.

    1. No I do not. One of our other users mentioned that they ran into a similar problem but the problem was due to the fact that they did not restart chrome after installing the Chrome 4 dev channel.

      Did you install Chrome 4 dev channel? Did you restart chrome after the installation?

  6. Chrome was not auto-updating to 0.6 for me, and I couldn’t get it to force an update either. I uninstalled and re-installed and now I have 0.6

  7. Feedly installed and is working great in Chrome for Linux. But on my Windows machine, there is no Feedly icon appearing anywhere in Chrome (neither in the toolbar nor in the Extensions bar). I tried restarting Chrome, but no dice. When I open the Extension Panel, it does show Feedly as being installed. Am I overlooking something obvious?

    1. Why yes. Yes I was overlooking something obvious: I’d forgotten to update my version of Chrome. Feedly is now working perfectly.

    2. I really do miss the Save fertaue; when is that coming back? I see it on some feeds, but it is not universal. Please, please, please add this to your update! Plus, is there any way to increase the font size in the number of unread articles on the left sidebar? The current size is very hard to read at times, especially when you are using it after a long day

  8. v0.6 also didn’t automatically update or prompt me to update. Manually installed o.7.

    I posted a few suggestion on GetSatisfaction, but haven’t seen any action on them.

    There are two important changes I would like to see which should make the use easier.
    1. Make the “Read/Star/Share” widget over on the top-right corner of the current post all the time. So that even when you scroll down while reading the post, all the 3 options are there for you, you don’t have to scroll back to the top of the post.

    2. Once you start reading a post & scroll down, finish the post & decide to send it to twitter, why are you required to scroll back to the top to share on Twitter etc? The sharing toolbar should also be available after the end of the post, at the bottom.

    I know keyboard shortcuts exist, but this behavior makes sense.

  9. Latest version doesn’t work properly. Links on the right don’t work and Twitter, Facebook etc. integration don’t work anymore. Is it me only?

  10. Hello guys!

    I’ve received a DM on twitter with permission to download feedly for chrome.

    ” feedly_chrome
    Hi. You should be able to install feedly for chrome here. http://blog.feedly.com/feed… Have a good week end ”

    The problem is that when I click the link and then try to start the download, appears the following message: Invalid value fot ‘permissions[0]’
    How can I fix this problem? I like Feedly very much and really want to use it in google chrome.

    1. Adriano, I have heard of this “permision” error being raised when the user did not have the latest version of Google Chrome. Please see the links in this page and make sure that you have the latest version of the Chrome Dev Channel installed

      1. mark as read until this article might work. It would be great acullaty and it can work very good for all views. Marking as read per date is good but after some thinking, it wouldn’t be efficient enough to use I think.Cards view+auto select on scroll is also a good combination but not efficient. Because articles on the right side can go without selecting and marking as read.Best way to look at those kind of feeds right now is full article view. You can auto select on scroll just for full articles. That way marking problem is going away. I use that way and browse with j/k.(Happy to see j/k bug is no longer with us by the way. )

      2. Weekends to peoplemean that they can have a two-day good rest. For expamle people can go out to enjoy themselves or get together with relatives and friends to talk with each other or watch interesting video tapes with the whole family.Everyone spends weekends in his ownway. Within two days,some people can relax themselves by listening to music reading novels or watching films. Others perhaps are more active by playing basketball wimming ordancing. Different people have different relaxations.I often spend weekends withmy family or my friends. Sometimes my parents take me on a visit to their old friends. Sometimes I go to the library to study or borrow some books togain much knowledge. I also go to see various exhibition to broadenmy vision. An excursion to seashore or mountain resorts is my favorite way of spending weekends. Weekends are always enjoyable for me.

  11. Just a a quick question. Will you guys be developing feedly app for the iphone.I love if i can take feedy on the go and sync with the browser at the same time:)

    that would b perfect.

    and Im still not seeing the overlay minibar..thats usefull

  12. Many of the Chrome extensions show how many unread items one has at the corner of the menu icon, such as Gmail and google reader. Is it possible in Feedly?

  13. It would be great to open links, like titles of items, in a new tab by clicking the middle mouse button. In Firefox that works but not in Chrome (downloaded Chrome an Feedly today)

  14. Two categories have switched their positions in the menu. In Firefox I have … but in Chrome it’s ….
    Furthermore there’s one category “blogger-follwing”, don’t know where it comes from but it’s wrapped after “-” and the white colored text is not on the background any more (screen res. 1024×768)

  15. feedly is the hub for sharing great, relevant content via social media like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. As others have descrived it, it’s just like having your own customised, constantly and automatically updated personal magazine, bringing together all your interests, whether business or personal. Google Reader is great functionally, but the UI is poor. Putting feedly over the top of Google Reader makes reading news a visual pleasure, not to mention incredibly easy to then share articles with your network. Well done guys. feedly is pure brilliance.

  16. younger generation over the country forover a few years at this moment.
    If perhaps searching for a fluids auto dial 938-555-0100 for the Jetmax to be able to wipe out these kinds of
    rough soaked family vacation. Dill on shows very clearly that video games
    do have an effect on the behavioral aspect and in turn on the life of that person.

    1. 26. cameos 2008/09/03 10:21 gologe chrome 大大超过我的预期,我大概连着用了4个小时,一次也没有崩溃,感觉是比 Fx 快很多,我会考虑在 512MB 内存的笔记本上用它当主浏至于在 2GB 内存的台式机上还是接着用 Fx 吧,没有 adblock, 不能用 evernote/delicious/foxmarks/foxproxy/gmail manager 的滋味还是不好受
