Download RSS Bandit
RSS Bandit is a RSS and Atom reader that allows you to keep track of all of the news feeds you follow on the net. It's newspaper view lets you get a quick overview of unread posts across the blogs you subscribe to. The newspaper view can be customized and the templates are compatible with those used in FeedDemon.
If you flag anything for follow-up while reading - these posts are always easily accessible in a special flagged items folder. RSS Bandit also allows you to read comments to the posts if the blog supports this feature - so you don't have to leave RSS Bandit to read them. And even better you can send your own replies to blog posts - your replies will be saved in a sent items folder for later reference.
If the blog you read does not support all of the comments features - you can simply open it in the embedded browser as a tab. If your browsing takes you to a new site RSS Bandit will auto-discover feed for that site.
Another strong feature of RSS Bandit is that it will allow you to synchronize everything with NewsGator online. So everything marked as read in either application is reflected in the other. You can also synchronize multiple instances of RSS Bandit if you have it running on multiple computers. This can be done through WebDAV or FTP, this of course requires that you have access to a web hosting account.
RSS Bandit also provides access to news on news servers (similar to Google Groups) - it uses NNTP to read and post to newsgroups anywhere on the net. It integrates to Goolge Groups by linking to posts on their website.
