Feedly – An awesome FireFox addon combining twitter and Google Reader

Feedly is a FireFox addon that combines Google Reader and Twitter to give you all the related updates on a single page in your FireFox browser.

Feedly basically pulls all your Google Reader subscriptions, groups them and displays them to you in an easy to read format. You should note that Feedly would be integrated with your Google Reader, which means any articles you mark as read on Feedly would be marked as read on your Google Reader as well.

On the right hand corner of every page you visit, you would be able to see a small feedly bar that helps you share articles you like on twitter as well as view any discussions the article has had on FriendFeed. Using the feedly bar you can even email pages that seem interesting.

You can use drag and drop to change the order of the categories on the navigation bar. You can re-organize the content on the dashboard and mark some of your must-read sources as favorite.
Do check out the preference page to customize Feedly. Once you install the Feedly addon, you would see a green icon on your FireFox toolbar. You can use it as a shortcut to access your feedly.

Feedly even allows you to search over all your subscriptions!

P.S. One thing that intrigued us was that feedly required neither our permission nor password to post a twitter update! All feedly needed was that we should be logged into our twitter account! Any explanations?

Quickie

  • FireFox addon that combines Google Reader and Twitter
  • Displays all your Google Reader subscriptions in a magazine like page
  • Access the Feedly page anytime by clicking the green icon on the FireFox toolbar
  • Articles marked as read on Feedly would be marked as read in your Google Reader
  • Share articles easily at the click of a button
  • View FriendFeed discussions for every page you visit
  • Easily tweet a page you are currently browsing without leaving the page
