RSS reader


What's up?

Actually,I'm looking for a RSS reader for me to play with my blog (and others).Unfortunately,I couldn't really find a neat and well-developed RSS reader on Linux.The most probable reason is that it's not really mature enough on Linux platform.Would you please recommend one for me if you've discovered one?I would be appreciated if this reader provides sufficient and well-documented documentation/how to.As far as I know,most of the reader can't deliver such thing.

Thanks.

Give bottomFeeder a try.

This is the one I use and it works great for me. I like the fact I can use it in Linux or in Windows when I am at work.

I know there are others, but that is the one that works for me.

publishine RSS feeds in my web site....

ever start diggin into specs and just get tongue tied?

My goal is to have current news and feeds published on my site as a value add to my visitors, to get people coming back, you all know the drill...

what have YOU found as good info on just what is needed to put on a site to pull in and display feeds ?

I keep finding stuff on how to write my content so others can troll and pick up my content... i want to get content and publish it on my web site...


suggestions on good things to read for the 'dumbarski anlystski' types like me?

thanks

Hey I know this was an old post but since I am looking for a good RSS reader I tried this today. I think it is very interesting- a little weird, a little slow, but still cool.

One very BIG problem is that the internal browser always centers all the text and I can't fix it! Do you know how? If you are still on the boards......

Thanks,
Randux
