    Hey -

    Just starting to get into the whole RSS craze. It's lookin' pretty good to me. I went ahead and got NetNewsWire, which, according to a few other threads, seems to be the "OS X" standard for RSS readers...any other recomendations?

    Are there any comprehensive lists of the better feeds available for Mac-related stuff (or other stuff, for that matter) ?

    Thanks

    I use NewsFire - nice and simple, and a clean UI

    I use bloglines, and like the fact that it is completely web-based. Along with webmail from Gmail, I like being able to access everything from any computer I want. Web apps are improving and increasing, for the good reason that they lessen your dependence on one computer. And although this problem is being worked on (see link below), I originally chose bloglines since it's a lot more friendly toward the servers hosting the rss feeds. Instead of having each user check every feed, one bot from bloglines scans the feeds and distributes them to each user, lessening the bandwidth demands on the original site.
