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!
