Question: Good integrated RSS reader/bookmark manager?

Sun, 23 Apr 2006 06:27:10 -0800

What's the best RSS reader?

I'm looking for a top-notch RSS reader to use for work. Here are a few points:

* I use Outlook 95% of the day.

* Is there a good integrated bookmark manager // RSS reader (besides Pluck)?

* How the heck do you export feeds you've built using Pluck?

You might want to check out the AJAXy goodness of NewsAlloy. I'm not sure what you mean by "integrated bookmark manager," but you can submit links to (or digg) right from the reader. It's incredibly feature-rich, and is hella fast.

More here, and here.

I fourth and fifth the recommendations for bloglines that you'll probably see in those other threads. since it's all web based, you don't have to worry about synchronization because it's gonna be the same whether you look at it at from home or from work.

seriously, bloglines made the internet fun for me again. it's the home page of every browser on every computer I use.

Nothing's worked well for me until Google Reader.

I do think that Bloglines is the best solution out there (albeit sometimes a bit slow), but since you're using Outlook so much, I'd recomment Attensa, which is a reader specifically designed for Outlook. They offer synching with their online version and with smart-phones.

Since I don't want to end this sounding as if I'd approve of your usage of Outlook, do check out Thunderbird, which offers all sorts of RSS greatness as well.

Opera RSS reader is very nice and friendly... almost cuddly.

You might want to check out some of the other thousand threads on this subject. Some are really good.

(though you'll have to wade through comment after comment of "bloglines!" regardless of your stated needs nor the fact that 99 percent of people are aware of bloglines)

NewsGator and Attensa both offer excellent RSS readers that integrate with Outlook and with their respective online feed-synching services. NewsGator also has standalone desktop tools like FeedDemon (on Windows) and NetNewsWire (on the Mac) that sync as well.

Based on the recomendation (and screencast) of a certain large, green website's maintainer, I use reBlog. You need to have a server to throw it on, and it's a bit weird (why doesn't it tell me the # of unread messages?!). But for sheer speed of blowing through feeds, it can't be matched by anything else.
It is sort of integrated, in that it is accessed in your web browser.
