RSS Reader

Just curious, what RSS reader do you use or recommend? I use Google Reader a little bit, mostly because I like that it's already on my google toolbar, but I feel like it doesn't quite work how I want it to work. Anyone got anything better? And not too complicated.

  1. I use Google. I'm not a sophisticated computer person so it works just fine for how I use it.

  2. I use Bloglines. It's probably not as sophisticated as Google, but it does the job.

    All I need from an RSS reader is that it tells me when there's new content, then I click through to the actual blog because RSS sometimes strips away formatting that improves readability, and the font, images, and color scheme help me associate the content with the blogger.

    Bloglines is good enough for that.

  4. I guess it depends on what you want it to do.

    I use Google Reader and I find that it does almost everything I'd want it to do, including folders and sharing. I also use bloglines and the built in RSS reader in Mozilla Thunderbird. I've tried a few RSS readers for Firefox and I've always come away disappointed.

  5. I use Bloglines as well. An additional plus for Bloglines is that you can use it on your own blog instead of Blogrolling.

  8. Bloglines all the way. It's the only one I've ever used, although perhaps I'll check out Google Reader since I love all of their other stuff.

  10. crash-esquire: an RSS reader is a software that collects the RSS feeds of your favorite websites. Most websites and blogs now publish RSS (Real Simple Syndication) feeds that are basically like an announcement that says: "Look! I just updated my site!" The feed displays the latest post or story with most or all the content and a link back to the original site.

    The RSS reader collects all of the feeds of the sites you want to follow and it brings it to you, instead of you having to check different sites. This way, you'll know when a site or blog is updated.

    You tell it what sites you want to follow, it brings you the latest posts.

  11. I use My Yahoo! It does everything I need and I like the ability to set up different rss feeds on different pages.

    I've never tried Google's reader so I don't know how well they compare.
