    I installed Sharp Reader the other day because I wanted to subscribe to telerik's RSS feed.

    I've quickly become addicted to using RSS for all my favourite blogs.

    Since I'm new at this, I was wondering what other people are using as an RSS client.

    My favorite RSS reader is the Google RSS Client. The reason I love Google's version, is because it's browser based. So any of the 30+ computers I use every single day have full access to all my RSS feeds.

    Another awesome feature, which I'm working on setting up right now, is they allow you to export your starred list as an RSS feed, so you can include it on any website to provide links to the most recent blog topics which interest myself.

    Let me know what you think, hopefully you'll love it just as much

    My favorite by far is rssBandit. http://www.rssbandit.org/

    I love its interface, and I like that its opensource C# as well.

    I installed rssBandit and I have to agree that it looks nicer than Sharp Reader.

    I'm looking for a destop app so I'm not interested in Google's web based reader.

    What's interesting is that Sharp Reader has no problem with telerik's product update RSS feed but rssBandit doesn't like it. telerik's blogs feed works fine though.

    Also, FeedValidator.org says that the RSS feed for the product updates doesn't validate.

    I like FeedReader a lot (http://www.feedreader.com/), very easy and simple... Basically everything I need from an RSS reader.

    Btw, I have the same issue too, Telerik's product update RSS doesn't work properly while the blog RSS does work fine.

    Have you tried www.netvibes.com, it's also really good and web-based.

    Hi,
    I commonly use Maxthon (http://www.maxthon.com) and it's built in RSS reader. Maxthon was voted #12 in PC World's Top 100 products of 2005.

    Best Regards

    Hello to all of you,

    Concerning the product updates, the error is caused by the date format of the rss. I want to apologize for this problem and to thank you for reporting it to us. We are going to fix it ASAP.

    Kind regards,
    Natalie Farah
