I will miss this a lot! It was so practical! I like feedDemon because it has a better interface, google reader is kinda messy. And the panic button is a very useful feature. The great amount of articles in google reader after a week without reading used to make me run from the page. And a cumulative growing of articles begun. But I feel a flaw in FeedDemon that sometimes make me nervous. The browser is heavy and delays to open the news page, and download the images. I live in Brazil, and the internet here is not so good, and better processors are just now being accessible (in cost terms). But, google chrome works fine here, and it's light. Sometimes I have to copy the URL to chrome, but it's boring to do this sometimes. Sorry for take advantage of your post to give an opinion about other issue.


Do you have any sense of what the feasibility of using G+ as the sharing vehicle might be (assuming they open up the API further anytime soon?) since that's where those features are being rolled into?

When you fast switch from one feed to another the program usually freeze (not responding) for a while then unfreeze and continue working. It happens many times. Please, fix that too in new version!

@Wayne There a link in the FeedDemon Support Forum for a pre-release build that should fix the freezing problem you're seeing - you can find it at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/feeddemon

@critter I'm not sure yet whether using G+1 is feasible. There's a JavaScript API for it at https://developers.google.com/+/plugins/+1button/ but it's going to be tough to use that in a FD newspaper due to security restrictions (ie: I disallow script because it's the local zone).

Thank you Nick! I'm trying the prerelease as you suggest. I want to notify you that this works very better but the freeze problem is still present. It's not happening very often like before but it's still present.
