I finally found another RSS feed/blog reader program I like. I had liked my old application Blog Navigator; it was basic but easy to navigate. For some reason, it was dying a slow and ignominious death, probably from over reading too many blogs I check. I was sick of the error messages, but had tried several and they were either too expensive (Hey, I can serve around with my browser and check sites for free, folks!) or to cumbersome.
I stumbled on feedreader and am quite impressed. Its opensource and free. If you need an RSS/Atom news/blog application, I recommend it.
