New RSS Reader by Apple for Windows (and a sweet, fast browser)


You’ve used Google Reader and BlogLines, but have you used Safari? Safari has been my RSS Reader (and browser) of choice ever since its debut years ago, but now its available for Windows as well! It’s not a web-based reader like others, but you can read, search, and sort all of your RSS feeds offline as well as online. Its subtle number count in your bookmark bar keeps you well informed when new content opens up.

Some other cool features? Resize your text areas (great for blogging!) and a nice clean look for buttons.

Oh yeah, and its FAST. Faster in HTML performance, Javascript Performance, and Application Launch compared to IE, FireFox, and Opera. Check it out for yourself. Here’s a screenshot, and the blurb from Apple’s site:

From Apple’s site:

Built-in RSS.

Scan all the latest news, information, and articles from thousands of websites in one simple-to-read, searchable article list delivered right to you. The built-in RSS (Really Simple Syndication) reader in Safari tells you when new articles or blog posts have been added to your favorite sites, so you never have to guess.

Whenever you land on a page that offers an RSS feed, Safari displays an RSS icon in the address field. Click it and you view the simple RSS feed. Bookmark it and Safari tells you how many updates have been added since your last visit. The RSS view in Safari is customizable, so you can adjust article length or sort and filter articles by date, title, and source. You can also use the built-in search field to find articles relating to topics of interest. All from one place: Safari.
