I’ve been using version 2.x since 2005 and it is the best RSS reader out there. Frankly, I can’t recommend it enough…if you’re a Mac user. Unfortunately, NetNewsWire is not available for Windows. NewsGator – the company that bought NetNewsWire last year – sells a Windows RSS reader named FeedDemon but it doesn’t even come close to NetNewsWire (the last time I used FeedDemon was back in July 2006 so it may have gotten better).
Anyways, here are some of the new features: (see Brent Simmons’ blog for the full list and descriptions)
- Spotlight searching
- Full Screen Mode
- Tabs with thumbnails and animation
- Feed ‘Cover Art’
- Ability to choose a folder when subscribing to a feed
Btw, Brent Simmons is the creator of NetNewsWire. His company, Ranchero Software, was acquired by NewsGator in 2005.
