→ Mr. Reader says not all RSS APIs are Created Equal

Just a few words about the APIs of some Google Reader alternatives and why they cannot be used with Mr. Reader.

This covers – at the time of writing – the APIs of Tiny Tiny RSS, CommaFeed, NewsBlur and others.

Rut roh. I thought NewsBlur was emerging as the favorite in the Google Reader replacement race, but, if the developers behind Mr. Reader cannot make use of its API, maybe that declaration was a little premature.

Based on the criteria listed in this article, it does appear that the Feed Wrangler API might have all the things necessary for Mr. Reader to integrate with it. For some reason, I still think that Feed Wrangler has the potential to emerge as the predominant Google Reader replacement when all of the proverbial dust settles.
