RSSOwl Review

" An open-source and fast reader for RSS, RDF and Atom Newsfeeds. "

What is RSSOwl?
Applications that collect data from RSS-compliant sites are called RSS readers or "aggregators." RSSOwl is such an application. RSSOwl lets you gather, organize, update, and store information from any compliant source in a convenient, easy to use interface, save selected information in various formats for offline viewing and sharing, and much more. It's easy to configure, available in many many languages and the best of all: It's platform-independent.

RSSOwl is also free, fast, cross-platform, and unobtrusive. It's easy to install, easy to use, and easy to move or remove.
