I enjoy using Lightread in Ubuntu 12.10. The thing is Google Reader is being shutdown and Lightread is a client for Google Reader, so it's feed will be cut of.
What is the best alternative as a RSS reader for Ubuntu 12.10?

If browser based, I am switching to Feedly. It will import your Google Reader account automatically. Google will help you find a suitable replacement.
EDIT; I have now settled on InoReader, far classier than Feedly, (actually has a working Chromium extension with unread count!) Also can subscribe to feeds via RSS Subscription Extension (by Google). Double lovely, indeed, super nice!
It's being overloaded with traffic, but look at Newsblur. The code is open and on Github, the site is designed in a freemium model.
At the moment I would recommend Liferea due to the ease with which you can import your feeds from google reader and the aesthetics are closest to that of Lightread compared with other readers like RSSOwl for instance.
Shame google reader is disappearing. I hope Lightread might get a feature to work without google reader.
This site should help you decide: http://www.replacereader.com/
Feedly has more supporters on that site.
If importing isn't a big concern, consider Pulse (pulse.me). It offers a Web UI plus Android and iOS apps.
A good alternative could be Stringer. Is a self-hosted RSS Reader that you could run in Heroku or any other server instance, so, as its creator says,
When BIG_FREE_READER shuts down, your instance of Stringer will still be kicking.
In my opinion the best alternative is Opera Browser. It has a mail and rss reader integrated in the browser easily read to feed and open switch between rss, mail, surfing and other features in one app.
You could also try Thunderbirds - Evolution.
Check out Feedbro - an excellent feed reader (RSS, Atom, RDF) to replace Google Reader. Works as a standalone Chrome extension! Very fast, feature rich & easy to use.

There is also The Old Reader, which is very similar to Google Reader. It is browser based and allows to import your data from an other RSS reader and has an API for apps.
Thanks for the great post. I like feedly. Its very best in design and very easy to handle. There are many new readers are coming in market. Recently digg Started Its digg Reader which is a good start. Here are some alternatives to help you.
I belive Feedly is best and others such as newsblur/ pulse are also worth a try. If you are looking for Browser friendly then Aol reader , Tiny Tiny RSS , Feedbin , Yoleo is best options.
