    Default Why Google Chrome Reader?

    StevePaul asked me why I used Google Chrome Reader but we were called off-topic by Kyrax, so, lets us continue here:

    my answer:

    @StevePaul:
    To me Google Reader is the fastest, most supported, easiest "cloud computing solution" for RSS feeds.
    Plus the number of Userscripts you find on http://userscripts.org/ for Google reader is amazing.
    I like to be "on the web" while reading RRS as most contains links that open in a browser anyway. This as opposed to "desktop" solutions"

    Plus: http://code.google.com/p/gtools-for-chrome/ really make a difference to subscribe to all or some feeds on the current page.

    Did I mention that Google reader was fast?
    I used to use the "Sage" extension in Firefox, well I find Google reader much better & faster

    I personally use Google Reader, simply because can easily integrate it with IGoogle and other Google services.

    Can't say I've tried a lot of readers.. but I'm quite satisfied

    Thanks for the input Guys ...

    I'll go and give it a whirl and know where to come if I need any help :-)

    @Luc

    As you seem to have more experience of the product, could you let me know what sort of Userscripts you use and what they actually do ...

    Saves me trying to 're-invent the wheel'
