Can you Recommend an RSS Reader?

Summary: We find many visitors to our site are looking for a way to read their own personal list of feeds. FeedSweep is a tool for webmasters and blog editors to place feeds on servers - not personal desktop computers. Here is a list of recommended RSS readers or aggregators.

Choose an RSS Reader

You can choose between free and commercial software. They can either be web-based readers or desktop readers. Try out some of our suggestions, however there are a wide range of RSS readers (sometimes called aggregators) available and new versions are appearing all the time.


Web-based Readers

Web-based readers require no software installation and make your feeds available on any computer with Internet access and a Web browser. They allow you to enter the URL of the newsfeed you want to subscribe to and then the feeds are refreshed automatically at a time interval of your choice.
