@Jonny Hadn't used Netvibes myself but I keep hearing it has performance issues from time to time. True or overhyped? :)

I tend to you use for my feeds, I also pull in weather forecasts othe tools like ebay and facebook. I've never liked firefox's own feeds and I'm not sure i'd like a seperate out of browser program. Have used for ages now and it always works perfectly. I should see if there is a "hide feeds without updates" type option and possibly look at a desktop app.

@Angelo Newsgator combines desktop and browser. There are rumours that next release will get sync with Google Reader. Personally I don't like Google Reader much. I heard a lot about Read It Later but my main browser is Opera. I just use "to browse" bookmark folder. And I am perfectly fine with your comments. I like comments (this blog was naturally like desert in early months) and I like apps. :)

I've definitely given a lot of thought to it, and every so often I go through a phase where I try and figure out how best to slim down the time I spend reading feeds or browsing through wikipedia. I've personally tried Newsgator and a few other Desktop RSS options but I could never get in to them. I much prefer google reader to them all, considering the bulk of my work and play happens in a browser. I suppose on that note it would depend on how you use your computer. One piece of software that I really do love however, is Read It Later, a Firefox extension. Basically you rightclick a link, select read it later and then keep going about your business (a time saver, especially when a quick google search takes you to wikipedia). Then, whenever you find yourself with some free time you can just click on the Read It Later button and it pops up a new tab with the oldest website in your RIL list. On viewing the website, it is automatically marked as read and clicking the button again moves to the next item. As a bonus, it even offers handy keyboard shortcuts. I must apologize however, I seem to be turning each comment of mine into a mini-plug for some random app that I use :P I'll try and keep that to a minimum.
