Feedly - Recommended news and RSS feed aggregator for Firefox.

I've been testing Feedly for about two weeks now and I must say...I really like it! Feedly is a news and RSS feed aggregator similar to Netvibes and iGoogle - a social and magazine-like start page.
Feedly is integrated with Google Reader - so in case you were using Google Reader in the past, any subscription you add to feedly will be added to Google Reader and vice versa.

To quote some Feedly features:

* The welcome wizard can learn from your existing personalizations - bookmarks, My Yahoo!, Bloglines, Netvibes, Twitter, Yahoo Mail, Gmail and Friendfeed - and apply them to your feedly.
* The what's new? page provides a real-time summary of the most relevant content available on the web based on your interests, your reading patterns and recommendations from your friends.

* The annotation tool makes it easy to clip the most interesting parts of a an article and share them with your friends. It also allows you to easily search for related information.

* The feedly+twitter integration allows you to easily spread the word about articles you find interesting. In context.

* The wall gives you a quick overview all the all the articles recommended and annotated by your friends. It combines your activity on both twitter and feedly.

* The explore module adds a pinch of serendipity by continuously suggesting new sources you might be interested in.

* The search bar allows you to perform a personalized search across your favorite sites.

* The dashboard makes it easy to get an at-a-glance view and manage all your favorite sources.

* The feedly API allows content owners to extend their reach by taking control over various aspects of the feedly UI. It will also allow third party developers to create new UI experiences (see cover, screensaver and feedly+flick'r for example) or weave in new annotation extensions (see Yahoo finance for example).

I also like the "screensaver" option where it displays a summary of pictures of RSS feeds you're reading

Anyway, you should try it!
