Anyone use RSS feed readers?
I found one the other day and I really like it. Times (http://www.acrylicapps.com/times/)
If you are using one, how do you like it?
What is it exactly - I started seeing it when I had win2007 put on the work computer (obviously not on the ole fart home computer). I started to look into it and got busy on other things ....
Have an "explanation in a nutshell" kinda thought?

it's a tool that goes out and gets all the new information from the websites or blogs you tell it to.
For example, I read about 10 blogs daily and instead of checking for the updates throughout the day, I go to my reader and it is updated every 15 minutes from all of the blogs.
Hmmmm, I already bog the work computer down (couple years old) since I normally have a bunch of things open, including <cough> this forum, Word, Publisher, Excel, etc and am transferring stuff all the time and boy, having something automatically grab updates like that sounds like it would push me over the edge. Sounds interesting though.

We use FeedReader 3.11 at work and I use it at home, too. I like it so far.

Nah, never liked the RSS reader in Firefox, not to mention I shove all my wanna-see sites into a folder and middle click it when I open Firefox.
That would just be something else I would feel obligated to read....
