"Lightweight open-source aggregator"Feedreader is a lightweight open-source aggregator that supports RSS and ATOM formats. It works under all Windows versions from Windows 95 to XP.
Feedreader is the most robust, highly-functional personal aggregation solution on the market today. It dynamically reads, collects, and organizes syndicated Web content, and seamlessly delivers it directly to user desktops. With Feedreader, you have instant, convenient access to the up-to-the-minute news you need, without information overload.
Feedreader automatically downloads updates from your favorite Web sites. So, it eliminates the need for you to constantly monitor multiple Web pages, while allowing you to immediately identify and retrieve new articles – no matter how long you’ve been away from your desk.
Feedreader provides cutting-edge features in an intuitive, user-friendly environment. Even non-technical users can view comprehensive, consolidated information from across the Internet – faster and easier than ever before.
Feedreader offers the broadest range of capabilities, and provides advanced, state-of-the-art features that cannot be found in any other agreggation solution. Its unique smart feed capability helps users immediately find the information that is most important and relevant to them. Users create smart feeds by simply entering key words or phrases that relate to their topic of interest. Feedreader then automatically monitors articles for those topics, and displays them in the left feed panel.
Feedreader also offers an innovative Intelliupdate feature that leverages a powerful algorithm to recognize and learn the update frequency of each feed, and dynamically trigger it only when needed. Additionally, Feedreader can automatically download enclosures and podcasts that are attached to articles, and allows you to tag all articles, for more intuitive organization and categorization. And, Feedreader enables users to create nested folders, and offers full support for Unicode and secure SSL connections.
Feedreader – with its Intelliupdate features – is designed to efficiently handle even the highest volume of feeds. Additionally, it starts up and shuts down quickly, so it won’t negatively impact desktop performance.
Feedreader supports all mainstream feed formats on market today, and will work on any computer running Windows 2000 or higher.
Feedreader’s interface is simple and easy-to-use. So, any user can leverage all its power and benefits, without any technical expertise. Users can select from different view modes – including the popular “River of News“ view – with just a single click, and group headlines by source, date, or tag. They can even add or remove columns from their views.
With Feedreader, you can leverage the most sophisticated news filtering features. Any normal feed can be converted into a “smart feed“, then quickly converted back to a normal feed by specifying what information to filter in or out. And you can easily increase the organization and readability of your feeds by combining multiple information streams into a single feed.
Feedreader is fully customizable, so it can be tailored to meet your specific information needs. And, Feedreader OEM is perfect for media companies, corporations, and other businesses that want to deploy a unique RSS reader solution across their organization.
Because the Feedreader footprint is so small (its installation file is under 4MB), it won’t use up excess space or compromise desktop performance.
And Best of All....Its FREE!
Feedreader is available to end users at absolutely no cost. No hidden fees, no spyware, no adware. Just powerful collection and delivery of content from your favorite Web sites.
