    I have Mail (of course) and just got Office 2008 with Entourage. Frankly, I shocked that Entourage can't do RSS! :eek: (It's XP cousin, Exchange 2007 can).

    So... I am back to looking for a good RSS reader. Mail is okay but it isn't great. Any ideas? :confused:

    I may end up using Google or Yahoo.com just because I can integrate RSS feeds into a personalized home page. :eek:

    I like Vienna. It does everything I need with a simple design, and it's free.

    I love NetNewsWire

    Other popular options are NewsFire and Vienna...

    I use Net News Wire because it lets me sync feeds between different machine, and it has a nice interface for the iPhone (or any other mobile device)

    Hands down it's NetNewsWire. I paid $30 for it last year and thought it was a good deal. It's now free so you definitely can't hurt by trying it out. It syncs with the online version Newsgator Online and they also have an iPhone reader.

    If you want open source RSSowl comes to mind first.

    A guy at work was using Mail.app in Leopard to manage his RSS and I kept telling him to try NNW. After it became free he tried it and said, "I can't believe I didn't listen to you sooner". It's in my top 5 for favorite applications.

    I use RSS Menu, it puts all your RSS feeds straight into your menu bar, great little app!

    I use FireFox as my browser and just added Wizz RSS and I am really enjoying this add-on. I have looked at the other readers that were mentioned in this thread and they all look nice. My thinking is that I am always in FireFox, why open another application?

    Because they generally have betetr features. I was a fan of Vienna but switched to NetNewsWire after it became free. Before that, when I was on a PC, I used Firefox but I wouldn't go back now.

    Another vote for NetNewsWire. I use the shareware version, but even the freeware version is quite good.

    It's all free now. I agree that the *paid* version is the best. :D

    I second the Google Reader vote. I used to use an app way back in the day but I use more than one computer (mac is at home, pc at work, etc) and it's a lot better than being tied to an app on one computer. Plus Google stores a nice backlog of posts which can come in handy sometimes.
