The 868,163 people who've installed Google's RSS-handling extension for Chrome can breathe a sigh of relief, because Google has resurrected it after its deletion last week.

"My RSS extension was removed by mistake, but it is now up again," said Finnur Thorarinsson, the extension's author, in a comment to a Chrome RSS-handling feature request. The extension detects RSS and Atom feeds on Web pages and lets people subscribe to them with feed-reading software; it's been updated so it no longer offers Google Reader as an option for subscribing.

This entire Google Reader debacle has made a lot of people seriously reconsider relying on Google services in general.

Removing the RSS extension from Chrome does not appear to have been the most well thought out move. If I were Google's foot right now I'd be wearing a bullet-proof vest.
