    Best Feed Aggregator?

    So I'm missing Google Reader and I need a good Feed Aggregator for Ubuntu 13.10. Bear in mind I don't have enough $$$ to cash out for stuff like Feedly pro. Any recommendations?

    Look at Liferea (in the repos). Also RSSOwl, which is not in the repos. KDE includes the Akregator app. I use Liferea.

    Since I do most of my reading online, I have ended up with The Old Reader. I was able to import all of my feeds from the download from my Google Reader.

    I find that feedly reader does a decent job and is compatatble with my favorite android google reader app greader pro. No reason to shell out money for pro feedly imo. The most similar to google reader I found is http://www.netvibes.com/en
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    I second http://feedly.com fast, light, capable.

    I switched to it after Netvibes wadded itself up with clutter.

    I'm not sure what you mean by your comment, unless you're not marking your feeds "read" occasionally. I switched to Netvibes, several months ago, anticipating the loss of iGoogle, and have been very happy with the change.
