What is Feedly Counter?
"Feedly Counter" is a functional Chrome extension tailored to offer live updates on your unread Feedly articles. This tool provides seamless, one-click access to Feedly feeds. Notably, it replaces the original extension that unexpectedly lost this essential feature. The extension is about to become more efficient and secure, on acquiring the Feedly developer ID for optimization. It recently rectifies the 'grey icon' bug for a smoother functionality.

Summary

Feedly Counter is a Chrome extension for Feedly, which allows you to see at a glance when you've got unread articles, and gives you easy one-click-access to your feeds.

I made this as an alternative to the original extension when it magically lost this option.

** New in 1.3.3:

  • Should hopefully fix the "grey icon" bug

** Future works and comments: I'm currently waiting for Feedly to give me a developer ID so I can make this extension smaller, quicker and safer. The work is already done, but Feedly is beeing a bit slow with processing my request. Once I've received this ID, expect a big update coming!

Also, regarding the "grey icon"-bug, I appologize for the inconvenience, I just got caught up in work and was unable to fix it until now. Bugs such as these should not happen, and especially not live for such a long period.

Are you going update the icon to match the new format (16x16) for the latest version of chrome?
by Justin Williams Justin Williams, 2016-09-17

Does what is says on the tin. Two cons: if you already have a Feedly tab open (I like to have it pinned), clicking the icon will open a *new* tab instead of switching to the existing one. All my other "open a website" buttons get this right. Please implement this. 2. It seems to have trouble staying logged in; I often need to click it to get it to update. Not sure what the problem is.
