Most Popular readers?
are there any yet?

 6:47 pm on Mar 2, 2005 (gmt 0)

I just started playing with RSS, and made my first feed with ASP yesterday. I use Opera, so I have a built in reader to test with (although it doesn't show images). What are the most popular readers out there right now? Are there any that even qualify as "popular" yet? I tried out Pluck, a little too insane for my liking. I've seen a couple more, but I have no idea if they are even worth installing. I don't need URL drops, just names are fine.

I guess FeedBurner has some stats:

I like bloglines because you can access your feeds from any pc with a browser.

Have a look here [allrss.com] for windows readers. For other platforms go here [allrss.com]. For Palm Hand/RSS is the best.

Good luck.

The most popular appear to be My Yahoo, My MSN, newsgator and my favourite Bloglines.

Like you I have tried many client side apps but found them to be slow or not developed enough.

Keep an eye out for the new version of Internet Explorer, it is ment to have a built in RSS reader, thats if anyone is still using IE by then.

Apologies to the moderator as i had my last posts deleted.
There is a fully customisable news reader available that the "brand" has full control over all parts of the reader.
I cant post the link to it but hopefully if i say its name is Custom Reader some of you may just be able to find it ;)
You cant find it using a search engine as its hust been released.

There will be a complete control panel for "brands" to display whatever information they want even if they dont have an rss feed.
Hopefully this post will remain.
The brand will be able to see how many users have downloaded and subscribed to their feed.
