No Sorry. Firefox is the recommended browser for feedly!

If your goal is to attract recently displaced Google Reader users, you may want to revise your position on this.

You now have Feedly running in Chrome, and i've seen some sites ask you to install 'Chrome Frame' in IE to be able to use them. Perhaps you could leaverage this to get Feedly into IE without have to do aditional coding, opening up the largest browser audiance to you?

This sounds like a really good idea.

Thanks but no thanks... I'd prefer it just to be possible to view it w/o extension in IE9. (Or by IE extension for that matter, but I can't go around installing extensions everywhere I go, so I prefer the extension-less route.)

Hello - This still doesn't make sense. I don't see anything in your site that strictly requires HTML5 constructs. It seems like a short-sighted engineering call rather than a business decision, but it's your product.

Michael, the fact is that IE 6-8 is a crap-browser. I hope for all of you IE-users that IE9 will be better. (It looks like it...) Until then - switch browser to a modern browser, or skip Feedly.

what nonsense.

IE8 can handle anything that Feedly is doing. Stick to the facts, not rhetoric.

BTW I'm a Chrome user. I'm just questioning the business decision.

I agree IE is a crap browser, but I hate bare-bones browsers like Chrome even more. I have it for when IE is acting crappy, but it doesn't mean I like it. Firefox just sucks for those of us that need more and aren't diehard nerds. I need my Favorites Bar and all my icons showing. IE 10 is going to suck also when they hide them.

Feedly is a great tool, and by implementing what you can implement WELL is far better than implementing a solution that is underwhelming on a piss-poor platform. Great job with Feedly! It rocks!

I have an additional question though... Is there any way to run feedly without a plugin? Being a consultant, I'm on different networks, different security, blah, blah, blah. And being a consultant that is addicted to Feedly, I have a hard time going all day at a client site where I can't get to it because I don't have permissions to install a plugin or can only use IE.

Can we get a "feedly light"? Something that just does the aggregation of pages from the server? Please? Pretty please?

Nonsense. This is an ad-hominem attack on IE. IE8 can handle anything that Feedly is doing.

BTW I'm a Chrome user. I'm just questioning the business decision.

I second the request for server-based aggregation. Something that works on iPad/Safari would be excellent.

There is NO reason why you can't support Internet Explorer. In fact I see no reason why Feedly needs to be as extension at all.

There is nothing that Feedly is doing that wouldn't work in IE8 - that much is true. It's likely a hacker culture issue more than anything else. With IE9 now out in Beta with better HTML5 support than Firefox/Chrome - we should see an IE compatible version or call out the BS for what it is.

Hi Adam. Could you please point me to the IE8 or IE9 Add-on developer tutorial? Unfortunately MSFT has not yet created an extension framework for IE. We will definitely look into IE support as soon as they do.

Many companies are tied to IE. Only releasing a product for "other" browers will not make a company change their browser. When the browser choice is that of a business and not the consumer that is a vast untapped market. I use Chrome at home so enjoy Feedly on Chrome. I cannot use it on IE at work so I natrually find myself gravitating away from Feedly due to needing to read RSS at work. On a positive note, Feedly is a beautiful product on Chrome. Thank you for the work and engineering involved.

Sorry about that. But unfortunately, we are a very small team and do not have the resources necessary for building feedly on IE at this point.

Thanks for the reply edwk. Hopefully something will happen in IE9 when HTML5 support finally hits the world of IE. If not then please keep up the awesome work on Chrome (and elsewhere). After 48 hours of Feedly on Chrome I am utterly hooked.

I'm in the same boat. Locked into IE at work and not a chance in hell of being able to load any other browsers on my work PC. I hope you can make this work at some point.

IE9 is out..but it still not include an open extension framework so there is not simple way for us to support it. Sorry

Feedly is great and is one of the few reasons I still have Chrome installed alongside IE9. So if you are doing this because you just don't like MS, it is kind of working.

I don't think that should be your fight though. If I were you, I'd try to get Feedly working in as many places as possible.

I'm pretty sure that it's just an anti-MS thing, their strategy should be to support every standard possible and the hooks into the ie9 browser are pretty simple to implement. In fact there's no reason why feedly needs to be an extension at all - it should work perfectly fine as a browser based application. In any case, there's plenty of other choices, I'm really liking Sulia at www.sulia.com. It's browser based and it works well on ie9 AND on the PlayBook browser, a big plus for me.

We do not hold any hate against Microsoft. We are a very small team and the only constraint is time. Right now, our focus is mobile and improving the existing desktop versions. Once we are over those hills we will look at the broadening our support to IE 9.0 and WP7. Have a great week end.

Hi edwk. Out of curiousity, why would you support WP7 before BlackBerry when there are 60 times more BlackBerry's in the market than Windows Phones?

When we prioritize platforms, we take into account install base, technology+performance and momentum. BlackBetty was a pioneer in mobile and has a huge install base but I do not think that they have the technology and deep pockets needed to compete against iOS and Android going forward. Microsoft on the other hand is doing a good job supporting HTML5 in the next version of WP7 and they have the resources needed to do what ever it takes to come back into the mobile battle. Finally, with the help of Nokia, they are going to be able to produce and market some really nice devices as well.

Agree Dj, the response is non-sensical. In any case, try Pulse or Greader.

As others pointed out due to company policies we are restricted to use IE in office.

Could you please add feedly to IE also?

I myself love this platform and use it continiously instead of other readers along with chrome.
I had it installed to all my devices, desktops, laptops, my HTC phone ecc except of work where I simply CAN'T because of this very weird decision of feedly!

Since I spend 50+ hours a week of my life at work and use IE in the workplace Feedly effectively lose my business for that substantial piece of time. This is eyes lost on Feedly and their advertisers.

Don't waste your time. Check out pulse. I believe they have an app for Windows 8, the website works nicely as well.
