Like many, I use the Google Reader to keep up to date with the EVE blogs I follow. Due to it’s incoming demise, I’ve been searching for an RSS Tool to replace it. I think I’ve settled on
It is a freeware tool with plenty of features and configuration options, including archiving, category tags and various search options and the like. It is not a cloud type solution – it downloads the articles to your local PC (which is what I was looking for). It can be linked in with your Google Reader – while it lives anyway. My only disappointment so far is I don’t think you can mark a news item as “unread”, which is annoying.
Edit: As helpfully pointed out by Mekhios, you can mark a news item as read / unread by using the Mark Read option.
