Most of the fuss has now died down over Google Reader; people have either decided that they don't need a newsreader any more, or they have found an alternative that works for them. However, if you're still lamenting the loss of Google Reader, you may want to try out a product called Feedspot.
I imported my G Reader OPML file of 235 feeds in less than 30 seconds, and everything was exactly where it should be. All the posts arrived very quickly, and it took no time at all to move from one to the next. I particularly like the ability to simply have a list view - source, headline and date, but you do have some choice in how you display feeds, and how they are arranged date wise.
Feedspot supports all the usual - tagging, folder organisation, sorting and so on, but has some nice social media functionality, allowing you to follow friends, share links etc with people via Facebook and Twitter. It also works on smartphones as well.
Feedspot is available for beta testing at the moment, and they do offer 'perks' which I suspect is probably going to be a years update to their 'Gold' version - Feedspot is working on a freemium model with the basics available for free, but the paid version is about $2.99 a month and this apparently turns off adverts, though other commentators have said that they have yet to see any.
I liked Feedspot, because it does mimic Google Reader very closely - there do seem to be a few bugs with it (mainly in the timestamping region), but it IS a Beta product, so things like that are to be expected, and it's unfair to criticise too much. If you've already found a reader that you prefer, I doubt you'll be tempted by Feedspot, but if not - give it a whirl.
