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?
