Does anyone care to discuss which feed readers they are using? Is anyone using the OPML Editor‘s NewsRiver as their primary feed reader? Any recommendations on features that help plow through large numbers of articles?
I’m primarily looking for something to run on Windows or Linux, but Mac users may be interested in the discussion, too.
I’ve worked with Google Reader, Bloglines, and (my current favorite) NewsGator. I have shied away from offline readers because I don’t want to have to download and install something on several PCs and worry about keeping them in sync. I do like the looks of BlogBridge, though. Multi-platform is great, but I don’t relish the thought of firing up the JVM with all of the RAM it consumes.
As bad as Google Reader seems, the one feature I really like is the keyboard shortcuts. I hate having to use the mouse on all the AJAX sites.
One thing about NewsGator I don’t like–besides the lack of keyboard shortcuts–is the fact that there’s no easy way to subscribe to a feed. There should be an Add feed box right on the NewsGator Online page where you can paste in a URL to a feed and click “Add.”
