Having got fed up with Google Reader for my RSS feeds I installed a copy of Fever onto mtheory. The interface is much more keyboard driven which may be a good or a bad thing depending on your point of view. On the whole I find it to be as functional if not more functional than Google Reader. The downsides are: it isn’t supported by very many RSS feed reading applications, unlike Google Reader which may be a problem for you; and it costs money. It also doesn’t support multiple users by default so if you want to use it you’ll need your own copy installed which is perfectly acceptable by the way.
