RSS: Recommended RSS Readers

Bloglines

Bloglines is one of the most popular online RSS Readers available at the moment. It's simple to use, looks pretty, and works as advertised. With an emphasis on the social aspects of RSS, Bloglines allows users to quickly and easily republish content on their Bloglines-hosted blogs, email content to their contacts, and share lists or directories of subscribed feeds with the public.

Rojo

Of all the RSS Readers I've tried, Rojo is the one that most closely encompasses the idea of Web 2.0. Rojo introduces mojo, a clever means for flagging content that's important to you. The more mojo a story has, the more likely it is to be picked up by other users and distributed further. Also, like Bloglines, Rojo emphasizes sharing. Users can email content directly to friends or share content with a list of contacts.

Blox0r
  • t3h Blox0r !!1! Home Page
  • License: GPL
  • Requirements:
    • Gecko based browser like Mozilla or Firefox
    • Valid Email Address

L33t 5p34k aside, Blox0r is nifty. It looks and behaves much like the everyday Desktop software that you're used to and does everything that you'd expect an RSS Reader to do. As a added bonus, the Blox0r source code has been released under the GPL thereby allowing 2-bit "hax0rs" like myself to use, modify, and release it as we see fit.
