RSS: Recommended RSS Readers

Desktop Clients

FeedReader

FeedReader is a no-nonsense, no frills RSS Reader for Windows that works much like most email clients. Having relatively few configuration options, FeedReader is dead simple to set-up and use.

RSS Bandit

RSS Bandit is probably the most polished and capable RSS Reader that I've used. It's an RSS Reader with a built in web browser (IE) thus provides you with tabbed browsing and web searching capabilities on top of RSS Feed viewing, management, and discovery.

Sage

Sage is probably my favorite of the bunch just because it is so simple and unobtrusive. Sage is an extension for the Mozilla Firefox web browser and loads the list of your subscribed RSS Feeds in the sidebar of the browser window. If you're already using Firefox (you should be) then Sage will get you on the RSS wagon without having to manage yet another application.

SharpReader

SharpReader is another no-nonsense, no-frills RSS Reader. It's simple to use, relatively painless to configure, and does exactly what it's supposed to do. Although I had a bit or trouble getting it up and running due to what I assume was a .NET incompatibility (I have .NET versions 1.1 & 2.0 installed), a quick read of the SharpReader FAQ and one file deletion later and I was receiving updates like it was going out of style.

If Desktop Clients aren't your thing, or if you just want to see what other options you have available, the next page will introduce you to a few web based RSS Readers.
