Guide Review - Attensa Online - RSS Feed Reader
Attensa Online does not set out to be an all-around news organizer. It displays RSS feeds — either as a stand-alone feed reader or, and that's what it was originally built for, in conjunction with Attensa for Outlook, from which it takes your subscription and with which it shares what you have already seen.
You can choose from a number of display styles (concentrate on just headlines, see descriptions, too, or fetch the referred web page in Attensa Online right away) and organize your feeds in folders. Attensa Online is considerate enough to merge all subscriptions in a folder (or the all-encompassing "My Subscriptions" category) into one thread, so reading is hassle- and care-free.
Unfortunately, Attensa Online does not offer any keyboard navigation, a feature even purists will certainly appreciate. If you do want more — search, for example, or the option to attach to items your custom labels and then share these as a feed in turn — you'll be better served with other RSS feed readers.
