    I’ve found that since I migrated to feedly, my Chrome runs out of memory often enough that I get a pop-up telling me to close Chrome at least once a day. It’s not as configurable as Google Reader, either, though I’m hard-pressed to quite put my finger on what it is I want it to do that it won’t. It’s very frustrating. I’ll check out some of these other suggestions.
