|Bottom line|| |
Bloglines is a fun and free newsreader that runs inside most Web browsers and is sure to please all but the most discriminating news junkies.
Rojo is a respectable newsreader, but it's not our favorite. We like its community-oriented features, but competitors such as Bloglines are easier to learn.
FeedDemon is a terrific RSS reader that can handle hundreds of subscriptions faster and better than the many free Web-based readers available.
The Google package of services represents the company's efforts to serve and integrate a diverse assortment of dynamic applications online. These Web 2.0 tools include those for e-mail, mapping, scheduling, instant messaging, managing RSS feeds, bookmarking, and vertical search. Because many of these free products remain in beta testing, this list will continue to evolve as Google updates its products. See our favorite 10 Google apps here.
