Awasu Personal Edition is an extremely feature-rich RSS feed reader. The option to enhance it with plug-ins and hooks in particular makes Awasu a powerful aggregator, in spite of some limitations.

3. RSS Bandit - Free RSS News Feed Reader

RSS Bandit is a nice and very capable feed reader that lets you browse news in an organized fashion. Its flexibility, virtual folders and synchronization abilities are great, but it would be even greater if it integrated with other online RSS news feed readers in addition to NewsGator Online.

4. Squeet - Free RSS News Feed Reader

Squeet - RSS Feed via Email Reader
Heinz Tschabitscher
Squeet delivers news items from RSS and Atom feeds to your email Inbox, integrating them nicely with other incoming "stuff" and exposing them to all the power of your email program while providing convenient subscription management itself. Unfortunately, Squeet emails themselves are not all that appealing and, worse, hard-coded to take up too much horizontal screen estate. More flexible delivery schedules would be great, too.

5. intraVnews - Free RSS News Feed Reader

intraVnews makes Outlook read RSS feeds naturally, allowing for smart grouping, searching, filtering and archiving of news items and blog posts. Unfortunately, intraVnews' interface is not always straight forward, and the option to post news would be great, too.

6. SharpReader - Free RSS News Feed Reader

SharpReader is a great RSS feed reader that knows how to organize news and blogs in their logical order to make following them easy. Virtual folders and searches would be logical next steps.

7. Mozilla Thunderbird - Free RSS News Feed Reader

Mozilla Thunderbird - Free Email Program
Heinz Tschabitscher
Mozilla Thunderbird is a fully featured, secure and very functional email client and RSS feed reader. It lets you handle mail efficiently and with style, and Mozilla Thunderbird filters away junk mail too.

8. BlogExpress - Free RSS News Feed Reader

BlogExpress is a nice, simple and highly functional news reader. You can't currently use it to search news or work on individual items, though.
