    This is a question for those of you who subscribe to RSS feeds. Do you prefer to use NetNewsWire or Mail or something else to manage your feeds?

    I prefer mail - granted, it's RSS capabilities are not as sophisticated, but it's another program less running. Plus, I am currently only subscribing to 7 or so feeds...

    I prefer NNW because I mostly read feeds at work (PC). When I'm home I'll occasionally flip thru feeds on my iPhone.

    The desktop / iPhone sync works well for my needs.

    I had RSS in Mail, but found that I didn't really read them much at home.

    Mail. Why install an app that takes space from your hard drive when you have a built in app?;)

    I'm using NNW for its capabilities of handling a large number of feeds elegantly and for its wealth of features. I haven't really used Mail that much for RSS, but intend to do that sometime soon. If I get basically the same functionality in Mail that I get in NNW, I might switch.

    I started out with Newsfire, but I switched to NNW a while ago. It's kind of a big app, but I can sync it up easily with Newsgator (I'm on a PC at work). I also like that I can open up the feed in its own window and read any posted comments.

    I've never used mail, and I frankly don't intend to as long as NNW keeps fulfilling my needs.
