A couple of weeks ago, we launched our brand New Reader, designed for optimum readability on all devices. And we thought this might be a good time to walk you through it, in details.
Reader View is usually considered the natural way to consume RSS feeds, as it allows you to have a quick overview of all your sources, without distractions. The great thing about Netvibes is that you can easily switch between the Reader View and the Apps View with the switch located at the top of your dashboard. So whatever your preference is, you can easily switch and keep your content intact.
But let’s get back to the Reader View for now. As you can see in the picture below, the screen is divided in three main parts: the Tabs panel (A), the Header with options (B) and the Main Window with your content (C).

Edit 01/23: We’ve been carefully reviewing your feedback and decided to make some adjustments to our New Reader.
- Web Site View will now be persistent for each feed
- IE8 / Safari 5 improved support (for users of older iOS/OS X versions)
- New Pinch-to-Zoom
- Coming soon: Compact Mode (reduced line spacing) and Adaptive Width (to improve space usage on large screens)
Netvibes pioneered the personalized feed reader and dashboard, earning numerous awards from TechCrunch, TIME, PC World and others for its user-centric design. Following the closure of Google Reader and iGoogle last year, more than 500,000 new users have recently joined the millions that have already been using Netvibes to manage their daily digital lives, crawling 25 million new articles per day.
For the last months, we’ve been gathering your feedback and brainstorming on how to improve our Reader. And today, we’re happy to introduce our all-new Netvibes Reader, thoughtfully designed for optimum readability on all devices, prioritizing slow feeds you might have otherwise missed and enabling users to curate content that matters to them. Let’s take a look at what’s new and how the best reader just got better…
From all of us here at Netvibes, we wish you a Happy New Year!
Wait… Is that a New Reader? It is indeed. And at the moment, VIP users can enjoy early access (the first in a series of forthcoming new features for our VIPeeps, but more on this later).
So stay tuned for a lot of great new features coming soon!
