What is a good RSS reader now that Google RSS is closing?

My son asked on Facebook and this is copy/paste/edit of my comment to Dave
What is a good RSS reader now that Google RSS is closing?
  • My current reader

  • FeedDemon but its a download for Windows -
    BUT read Nick's comments on google closing
  • Nick is going to make it Free and no sync to google but of course its Windows desktop

    FeedDemon - Free Windows RSS Reader
  • What I like is quick to load feeds
  • And I like to scan feeds – open ones I want and pass to next feed with a All READ for previous feeds – which FeedDemon does Plus an option only show the Unread ie new feeds- another recommended download Sharpreader shows all the feeds even those without current posts so boring and unproductive

    Web based ones - Lifehacker suggested some but methinks some are impacted by volume of new users esp oldreader
  • Now I have managed to load it Feedly looks very possible
    Lots of features and a quick way to mark all read – click the number on right and arrow to move to next bunch and it handles a folder of feeds as one 
    So I agree this overview
    Feedly. A fast and stylish way to read and share the content of your favorite sites. but I waiting for my imports to happen - was queue of 27000 Monday now 3300 - outline sounded good so I am monitoring I had already but have loaded my feeds and its a maybe
Looks like I have to select READ for each bunch of feeds
Will post more when Oldreader comes up but it is looking like Feedly as its web based

I've now seen OldReader and Feedly but whilst FeedDemon is still around I like it ......

Film: The Band's Visit (2007) - Egypt and Israel - nothing about the tension

A very human film and very funny
The Band's Visit (2007) - IMDb
An Egyptian Police band visits Israel for a concert and go to the wrong town. You would think it would be all  the Middle East's tensions but it is simply human interaction. As my wife said it is like a bad dream - all the things that can wrong when you travel to foreign places. Where do we eat? Where do we sleep? How do we get there? Will the people like me?
There are moments of nothing happening that I just found so funny. And a great deal of humour in how human everyone is. the ice rink scene is just so good.......

I caught it on our TV ethnic station SBS -
