I’m in the market for a new newsreader. Am I missing something, or are they all missing something?
I’ve tried dozens, all of which have their strengths, and most of which are good quality programs, but for me fall down on one thing or another — formatting issues, stability, bandwidth problems, look and feel, configurability (yes, I know I’m picky). These are my favourites:
I try something new but then I always return to SharpReader. Not because I love it, but because it seems to do what I need it to do most, namely, format the postings well, allow me to have subfolders of items, and to be able to view items either collectively in folders and subfolders, or individually via feed.
What SharpReader doesn’t do is update particularly well — it often gets stuck halfway thro a refresh — and it doesn’t look really nice. What I’d like to see is being able to alter the look and feel of folders, for example, so I can quickly move around a large collection of feeds.
Simple question, then: When is the killer newsreader coming? Or is it here and I’ve missed it?
