Desktop Based vs Web Based RSS Readers

All I want in life is a good Mac RSS reader that will work correctly with a web-based RSS aggregator site like Bloglines or any of the other 500,000 sites out there.

I hate getting left out of the game when someone, like the folks who make ecto, make an awesome program like endo for RSS reading. It looks sweeter than all get out, but, it’s not going to work for me. Why? Because I spend 9 hours a day, 5 days a week, behind a Windows computer at work… and I want to be able to read my RSS stuff there too. So, I use Bloglines. And Bloglines is awesome. But, it’s just not the same.

Am I asking too much?

  • I’m used to use Bloglines, but switched to some desktop readers (NetNewsWire Lite, Vienna) after I got tired of their interface. I really enjoyed the desktop feed reading experience, but missed the convenience of my feed status info being accessible anywhere. Now, I’ve got the best of both worlds in Feedlounge – a web based app with a cutting edge “desktop-like” interface. It’s worth checking out:
