I never use any of that fancy stuff but nekochan sure looks great especially on mobiles now :)

Jose: I've only recently started using rss, now that it is dead to the rest of the world. I should add nekochan to my feeds...

rss is nice but only when using it through a local program. otherwise in case of web based services you give them all your feeds, they see what you read when and for how long and from where and so on ...

I've been hearing that RSS is dead for more than a decade, but it keeps on going! :D

Fair enough, but the folks at The Old Reader seem to be in it for the right reasons. They built an RSS reader for their own use, and then they made the mistake of making it available to other people. Word spread, it took off, and their hobby started bankrupting them (more or less). To cover their costs, they started charging for people who follow more than a handful of feeds. I gladly pay them $20/year for their service.

Obviously, there are other models involving ads and data sharing that other companies use for keeping the lights on, but so far, this bunch hasn't gone down the road of "monetizing" user data. We all need to decide how much information (if any) we're willing to share with third parties in exchange for various services.

mozilla used to have an rss reader included. it could be compiled with the main program as an option. i remember including it with some of my builds back then. it looked quite similar to the email client. not sure if it's still around tho

NetNewsWire works for me, and I spend a lot less time browsing around various bullshit. I read my news and blogs and move on in life.
