Most of you know that I use Bloglines as my preferred feed reader (or “feed reading service”). I like Bloglines because it’s easy to use and 99% hassle-free. Most of all, I like Bloglines because it’s web-based. That means that I can read my Blogroll from any computer at any time, and that I can keep my read/unread status in sync between home and work. But, sometimes Bloglines just doesn’t cut it, and I find myself in need of an actual feed reader (Podz, I’m looking at you. ^_- ). When I find myself in that situation, I use RSSOwl. Why? Because it’s free, open-source, and cross-platform. More to the point, I use RSSOwl because it works. Was this entire post just a plug for RSSOwl? That’s for me to know, and you to find out.
