How To Get Feedly Working With Safari

feedlySpeaking from personal experience, there was a bit of mystery for me about getting Feedly to work on Safari for OSX. So for your benefit here’s what to do (I’m on 10.8.4 OSX):

1. Go to

2. Download the Feedly Safari extension

3. Double click on the downloaded extension and you’ll get a prompt asking if you want to install it – click that you do want to.

4. The next step is where I got lost: how do I access the extension? Well, it’s not obvious unless you have a sharp eye, but look up to the left of Safari’s search/URL bar:


There’s the Feedly button. Click on it and you start the process of importing your Google Reader feed into Safari!

5. That’s it!


  1. still missing IE…

  2. robrecord says:

    Sorry, what? So I have a shortcut to the website now in my toolbar? What about adding feeds?

  3. That shortcut, when clicked has the ‘Add content’ option….

  4. Ah so the extension is simply a shortcut to the feedly website. Not quite what I had hoped for. Hope they bring out something more useful!
