Guide Review - RssReader 126.96.36.199 - RSS News Feed Reader
That's not bad, and with its classic three-paned layout and the option to read either complete feeds or pick individual items RssReader is quite functional, too. Unfortunately, its functionality doesn't reach much further, though. You can't organize the feeds in folders (possibly even virtual ones) or search, filter or flag news items.
RssReader does have new item notification via a system tray popup, which makes it an all-around nice way to follow the news. But for real efficiency to ease the news junkie's overload RssReader lacks features — and folders.
