Life of a Jackal

Another day a new beginning

Alertbear – RSS reader


Describe as "the free Windows RSS reader that doesn't think you should read feeds like email," and in that aspect I agree completely. Alertbear is a nice little free feed reader for Windows that lives in your system tray and pops up a "stack" of news reminiscent of IM notification boxes when new feed items come in. It has some nice features, like color-coded categories, mousewheel navigation, and feed auto-discovery, but otherwise keeps things simple. Like Lifehacker, I'm not sure how well Alertbear would work for those who track dozens or hundreds of feed, but if there are only a few feeds you're interested in, Alertbear might be up for it.
