After an apparent extra day of life Google Reader is finally shut down.

If you go to in your favorite web browser it will redirect you to and that page has a short 3 question FAQ about the discontinuation of Reader.


Included in the note is a link to the website AlternativeTo which goes to a list of several different options that are considered alternatives to Google Reader which might be useful.

The other key piece of info in this redirected page is the fact that you only have a limited period of time to download your Google Reader data via Google Takeout.

That window of opportunity to grab all of your Reader history will apparently slam shut at 12PM PST (3 PM EST) on 15 July 2013.

So have you picked your Google Reader replacement?
