For quite a while I’ve been looking around for a good feed reader. I was using the one that is built into Opera, but the slow-down while it updated the feeds every so often bugged me when I was busy looking at web pages at the same time. Sadly this is just one of the problems with Opera lately. I’m using Firefox much more these days.
I tried quite a few RSS programs then, finally, found the humorously named RSS Bandit. It’s open source (free).
I like the way it presents the feeds and file enclosures and it has a nice integrated, tabbed, web browser.
