Feedly syncs directly to Google Reader for now, and will migrate your feeds off google reader when the time comes. They have a post simplifying the transition from Google Reader to feedly. Feedly runs in the browser and on various mobile devices. It supports categories for feeds like Google Reader. It supports j and k keyboard shortcuts for navigating ...

Both Lifehacker and CNET have been quick to dump out some options for alternatives. I think in terms of reading on the web and on mobiles (all the below have Android and iOS apps) the best options are: Feedly - Probably the most popular alternative, syncs directly to Google Reader for now. Main downside is that using it on the web requires installing a ...

I just found Old Reader which purports to be "like Google Reader was back when it was good". It can import OPML files from Google Reader, has the same keyboard shortcuts, and seems to work pretty similarly. I'm about to try it out, and will post back once I get some impressions of it.

The following utility (created by me) may come in handy for such scenarios : http://plaintexttools.github.io/plain-text-table/ Usage is fairly simple and intuitive, thanks to the spreadsheet like editing capabilities of handsontable . Also it handles multi-line cells neatly.

If you own the website then Google Analytics is the way to go. If you don't own the website then it'll be a lot trickier. You can use something like Alexa ranks to track traffic generically, but that won't tell you anything about specific traffic. Or if you'd rather track the traffic you are sending to that page from your link I'd suggest linking to the ...

I am surprised that no one has mentioned Calibre - an ebook management tool. It also has capabilities for downloading RSS feeds and converting them into epubs or another format of your choice. Calibre is available on android but I don't think is available on iOS. However, there are ways to get around it. Calibre can be left running as a background process ...

Another open source self-hosted alternative would be selfoss by Tobias Zeising. I've just set it up and it works well for my few feeds. With the end of Google Reader, activity seems to have shot up and you can import your feeds from Google Reader.

After Google Reader turned out the lights, I experimented with a long string or RSS readers and aggregation systems. I eventually settled on Feedly and tried to camp out there. While the interface is polished and it does most things well, after a couple weeks I was frustrated with how little customization could be done. Adding feeds from mobile was also a ...

Since the OP specifically says: It doesn't have to use ASCII (it can be Unicode) I thought I'd share the link for the (mysql / unicode / html) table generator created by a SE user for use on SE I found on superuser. I found it quite useful to get unicode tables (which I sometimes prefer over the Windows-1252 compatible "ASCII" art). And this tool lets ...

The thread you refer to is 76 months old as of today (3/19/2014), dating that post to 2007. It seems that the text stats feature was removed at some time during 2012. Curiously, Amazon's help page still mentions the text stats feature. Hovering over the cover of *some** books with the "Look Inside" feature enabled will bring up a popup that offers some ...

While I think this question is out of the scope of Webapps, the tool sounded interesting so I did some research. Is "Let them sing it for you" the tool you're looking for? Looks like the original creator has stopped hosting the project: For unknown reasons the Swedish National Radio decided not to host the project anymore in late 2011. Hopefully it ...

I'm experimenting with Pulse and am so far moderately impressed: The UI is a thing of beauty, but the user experience is quite different from Google Reader and importing your Reader feeds with the web version of the app is not possible. They claim to have a very simple import function to grab your Reader feeds in the mobile version though, which I haven't ...

I wanted something which could capture screenshots of a local server, so a web service like Browsershots wasn't what I wanted. Therefore, using html2canvas I've made a bookmarklet which captures a screenshot locally, rendering elements with a canvas. To use it, copy this as a bookmarklet: (function(d,w,h,s,i){w[h]||(s=d.createElement('script'),s.src='//...

Maybe you can just use a Google Spreadsheet to do that? Or if you need something more database beyond a simple spreadsheet, you can try Ragic Builder. It has pretty good search and analytical database features.

If you only have 5 users (you said under 6), then I recommend either: Snapforce CRM Zoho CRM Both Snapforce and Zoho are great for small businesses, i believe snapforce won 2013 award for best CRM system to use under 100 employees. But both are worth checking out. As they both offer FREE editions.

There are many languages that can aid in 'animation' behavior. Depending on what type/level of animation you want, will point you in the right direction. If you want just mouse-over animation, javascript and CSS are your friends. If you want something more sophisticated you'll want to look at Flash (but that's a beast of its own). For the most part, ...

It makes also all links you shared searchable. We have launched recently and glad to invite you to test!

Go to playbackloop.com and you can paste in a YouTube playlist or channel URL and it will play it in chronological order. It uses the YouTube API and works great. It looks like they only play in order from oldest to newest though.
