RSS Viewer?

Here's a question for the peanut gallery. I've been developing a habit of skimming a bunch of tech feeds each morning, to keep up with the technology news. The tool I've been using for that is the "Web Clips" Gadget for Google Desktop, but I am gradually coming to the opinion that, to put it politely, that Gadget sucks rocks. The design and concept are reasonably good for my purposes, but it's nowhere near stable enough for regular use. (In particular, it seems to regularly get "stuck", and just stops fetching articles.)

So all right -- let's re-examine assumptions. I'm looking for recommendations of good RSS viewers. What I like about Google Desktop is that it lets me quickly skim the headlines, seeing just the title and source of each article, dive in for the full RSS details (the first paragraph, typically), and then click to go to the article itself. I'd like something with similar characteristics, that lets me quickly skim and then easily dive in. I have no strong opinion between something web based vs. installed (Windows) software.

Opinions? What's good?
