Phil: ”It’s getting to the point where it’s going to be hellishly hard to persuade me to even give competitors a decent trial, much less get me to switch.”

I’m that way with Newzcrawler. It could use a few things… exporting OPML, comments support, a couple bugfixes… but it’s so polished and fundamentally sound that I start to itch every time I use anything else. The only thing that keeps me playing with the alternatives is the languid pace of Newzcrawler development. I see gee-whiz stuff getting added to something like Sharpreader, and I can’t help but install and give it another try. But I always come home to NC at the end of the day. :)

The feedster integration works both ways because of the Radio Useland button (amongst others) of every result returned by Feedster. Clicking on that automatically loads it into SharpReader.

The problem with the listen-on-localhost technique (unless I’m wrong, in which case let me know) is that it requires SharpReaders, Radio, Amphetadesk etc to be running when you subscribe. Why can’t it be as easy as signing up for an email newsletter, or even clicking on a link in an email message? Using the media player example – a lot of them try to load at startup by default, but even if you disable that ”feature,” they still load when you click on an mpeg file. Why make RSS any more complicated than that?
