“(ThinFeeder)”:http://thinfeeder.sf.net If you’d like a small, no-frills, easy-to-use RSS/Atom aggregator, check out ThinFeeder. I’ve used it for about two minutes and already like the intuitive setup and no-nonsense interface. There is written in Java so there is a version for most OSs. Subscribing to feeds is a breeze and you can “skin” the application interface with a few different color schemes for readability.
One drawback to ThinFeeder is that it does not parse HTML — meaning that all HTML code is displayed in the text of the news feed rather than being formatted. This also means that images do are not visible in any feeds — only the HTML that should display each image.
Still, for a relatively new feed reader, ThinFeeder proves better than most of the competition: it’s light-weight, fast, and easy.
