The correct term would probably be web app. Web service is for programming against.

i'm in the same situation. at work i'm only allowed to use IE and it won't let me install any other browser or extension.
as much as i already love the feedly app for android and ipad i would have to look for an alternative if i cannot access the reader from the browser at work as i want all three systems (mobile, ipad, internet) synced.
Another advantage of fully web support on portable devices :
My wife and I use the same ipad but we use different browsers (safari and me maven). So when i want to share an item, i am redirected in Safari on Google+ or facebook on my wife's session... not cool.

This would be my #1 item to fix. I like using Feedly on my computer, but really don't like the experience using the app on my ipad. If Feedly becomes a full web service instead of a plugin, then everything would be great again.
I like to browse through my reader in a chrome tab on my ipad. I'll then click to open in a background tab any reader title that looks interesting (if I don't get the full article in the reader). Then after I go through my entire list of unread items, I'll go through my newly opened tabs and start reading what I was interested in. This would be so simple if I'm accessing feedly through chrome on my ipad. However, with the app I can open links in chrome, but going back and forth between chrome and the app is a major pain in the ass.
Please do this, I have installed the Android app but will not install the Chrome extension because it can access data on all websites. Not that I expect any skullduggery on your part, I just refuse to install any extension that has that ability out of principle.
Please , this is very important that we have Feedly as a full web service.
You know it's just right . it makes sense in every way.
I agree as well; right now I have the freedom to install the extension on the few browsers I do use, but I don't think I should have to if I just want to kill ten minutes at work browsing through some feeds.

Google Reader worked very well in a regular browser without extensions, such as Internet Explorer 8 and 9. Since most workplaces are restricted to use only the default company supported browser (which usually means Internet Explorer), it would be optimal if Feedly would work in those browsers as well.

Very much agree. (though I'm not gonna "waste" my votes on the already-#1 issue.)
For the same reason-- a mobile website that doesn't just try to get me to install an app.
I need web service as well. My org has 10,000 computers, all locked down: nothing can be installed, no new apps, no new browsers.
Provided feedly can avoid being declared a "social networking site" by the firewall, I will happily pay for a proper Google REader replacement.

Lack of a web interface is the only reason I haven't signed up yet. This is a 100% must for me.
I can't use feedly without this. I can't install plugins on my systems.
Agree, would prefer this!
since my computer is shared I don't like being logged into my Gmail all the time ...but then I don't like having to login everytime i open Feedly either (which is a lot!).
That would make it a truly replacement for Google Reader. I need this!
All the latest trend with apps on different platforms is just more work for you guys to support them on different platforms. Stick with web interface and test it on different platforms for more users and less work. This is why Google Reader was/is so popular. Hopefully you guys will have this when I need to migrate close to July 1st.
I'm in this situation as well.
This is a must for all of us Google Reader refugees.

It would be useful also when you are out of your computer, using someone else computer. In this cases I was used to use Google Reader, while I use Feedly in my computer and tablet.
