OK…I’ve settled on Vienna as a desktop RSS reader. RSS Owl wanted to make tons of tabs and I couldn’t easily clean them up. I’m sure there’s a way to do it but I’m ADD with new software. The interface was a little barren. If it doesn’t stick within the first couple of tries, fuori!
Vienna seems a lot snappier in Tiger than it does in Panther. You can view the feed source html from within Vienna which uses Safari’s rendering engine. I think this feature broke when I had the Safari beta running but it’s fine with 2.0.x. Plus Vienna has styles which provide nice variety.
