Atom / RSS readers

For the past few weeks, I have been using the RSS Reader software to read the blogs. Though the software saves a lot of my time, it hogs a huge amount of memory and frequently fetches duplicate posts.

Any suggestions for a better Atom / RSS reader software ?


  • Bloglines.com is awesome. I use it to track 100s of sites. Since it's server-based, you don't have to worry about memory running out on your end. It's also handy if you have a slow internet connection and don't have the necessary bandwidth to track multiple sites.

  • Bloglines is good......it doesn't fetch the feeds instantly....there is some lag. whenever the blogger edits his post the new post is delivered again thru Bloglines.

  • Thanks guys. I have an account with Bloglines but never seriously experimented with it.

  • I use RSSReader and with increasing number of blog subscription, it is indeed sucking up the memory. But I think you can set the update time to something greater to avoid it doing too much work.

  • Gemini, I think part of the memory hogging is due to the .NET thing. But still haven't found a way to avoid duplication.

  • Omea Reader wins hands down, purely due to its powerful features...but it too hogs memory a bit...but its worth it...try it and u will wonder what have i been using so long...whats more?, it is a freeware...
