Google Reader stops offline support and recommends FeedDemon

Google today announced that it is shutting down offline support for Google Reader showing first signs of doing away with Google Gears. Google has also come up with changes overall to Google Reader and its privacy settings for sharing online.

I guess Google Reader is planning on newer and better options to keep it web centric and with new options for us to allow comments on shared items public and private I guess Google plans to make Reader into a dynamic social tool for sharing feeds and links very much like social networks. I guess this could mean life wont be easy for social bookmarking websites either.

What are your thoughts on where Google Reader will go? Do let me know through your comments.
