NewsBlurWeb (can be hosted or paid), MobileFree/Paid (OSS)Chrome WebAppNewsBlur is very similar to Google Reader with a sleek design. It can easily import feeds from GoogleReader or through OPML import. NewsBlur supports sending to Instapaper, River of News, and many other standard RSS reader features.
It has four advantages:

1) Has 4 different view options. It can show the original site, feed, text or story view.
2) It has training, it hides stories you don't want to read based on tags, keywords, authors, etc.
3) Highlights stories you want to read, based on the same criteria.
4) It rebuilt the social community that Google had stripped out of Reader, users can share stories through their BlurBlog, and discover new content by following friends' BlurBlog's
The service has had some slow down with the exodus of Google Reader users, but the solo developer who created it is working tirelessly getting it up to speed, so this should not be a limitation for much longer. www.newsblur.com

ReederMac and iOS only (as of 2013-03-14)$5Displays articles in a very readable layout, nice and clean UI. Downloads articles for offline reading. Nice UI porting most of the GReader pfeatures, and one of the best selling iPad apps.Depends on Google Reader for managing subscription (as of 2013-03-14). Can use Fever or Readability to sync. Blog comment by Arne: "This week the Reeder app put up a notice saying they will work with Feedbin ( http://feedbin.me ) as a Google Reader replacement. It's a paid service (only $20 p/y). Didn't try it yet but it looks interesting"http://reederapp.com/
