I’m looking for a Windows based RSS feed reader. I have been using Bloglines for awhile but I think I want to switch to a Windows version. I have so many syndicated feeds that Bloglines has become too slow.
I have tried Feedreader, but it is too slow in updating the feeds. I have had it running for 60 minutes and it’s only on the “D’s”. I also tried BlogExpress and it seemed to work pretty fast and it has a nice layout with a good feel to it. But, it is .net based and clicking on a URL brings up IE and I use Firefox as my default browser. There is no way to change the settings in BlogExpress.
I really like Sauce Reader but it is only in beta and it so slow loading and moving from category to category that it drives me crazy. The nice thing I liked about Sauce Reader was it had one click blogging from any article I was reading using WordPress. I also liked the feed auto-discovery feature of Sauce Reader. Very cool, but too slow. I will have to wait until it’s better developed.
My question now is, what else is out there? Any good readers that are fast, can handle over a 1,000 subscriptions, looks good, is Windows based, and has a “Blog This” feature?
