RSS Feed Readers
a little experiment

Now that Google Reader is dead and buried, as rss feed user you have been looking for the best replacement.
Perhaps you are already found your new home, possibly you are still wandering.

What reader did you choose?
I made my choice for the moment, but I'm keeping an open mind.

On my quest to the ideal replacement, I noticed significant differences in feed items count between the various alternatives I tested. That's the reason I set up this little experiment, in which I compare the items count of the 6 feed readers that pleased me most:

Netvibes
http://www.netvibes.com/ 
+Netvibes 

AOL Reader (β)
http://reader.aol.com/ 
+AOL Reader 

SilverReader (β)
https://silverreader.com/ 
+SilverReader 

go read
http://www.goread.io/ 

InoReader
https://inoreader.com/ 

Feedly
http://feedly.com/ 
+feedly 

It's a very straightforward experiment:
I imported the same OPML file in each reader, and during a few days, I register the count of new feed items in a spreadsheet.

After 2 days, this are the results.
Too early to draw any conclusions?
Don't know, though it seems SilverReader and go read are delivering far fewer items compared to the others.
Do they have a problem?
Let's continue this experiment a few more days. I'll post the continued results.
