Here is a list of RSS/ATOM feed readers (aka News Aggregators)

This software can be used to stay abreast of news, your favorite bloggers, your own website, the UUWiki website, etc. It's like a merging of the web and email. When a site's content changes on a site that you are watching, you are notified via an interface that is a lot like an email client. Download one and try it by subscribing to the UUWiki Recent Changes Atom Feed!

  • Windows
    • SauceReader - It's free. There's a solid developer community supporting it, and it has a feed discovery feature that helps a lot. Just put a URL of the site into the reader's browser, and hit the "Subscribe" button. It will find and set up the feed subscription for you. Requires ".NET Framework v1.1"
    • FeedDemon - 30 USD. Also a strong contender but recently started charging for software.
  • Linux (all readers are free and Open Source unless otherwise noted)
    • Straw is a desktop RSS and Atom aggregator for the GNOME 2 environment, written in Python
    • Liferea - Reader for RSS/RDF, CDF, Atom, OCS, and OPML feeds
    • Sindigator - RSS reader, featuring notification of new messages and long term message storage
  • Web
    • Bloglines - a web site that lets you track multiple feeds, publish your own blog, and share the feeds you like thru your own blog
    • UUpdates - An RSS aggregator, and RSS feed for UU sites. -- JohnCooley 00:39, 17 May 2005 (CDT) The site has three main purposes:
      • List Syndicated Sites, specifically provide a list Unitarian Universalist sites that provide syndication.
      • Provide a News Aggregator so that people without their own aggregator (or who simply want an online aggregator) have a place to go.
      • Syndicate the List of Sites for those who have aggregators and wish to check out new Unitarian Universalist syndicated sites.
