OK, I'm not going to pretend that I'm not new to all this....

I kinda get the idea of what an RSS feed is, but I've never seen it in action. Anybody point me to a suitable RSS client? Are there any limitations I need to know of? e.g. does it require certain ports open on firewalls etc?

Thanks in advance...

    Looks like I'm going to try Amphetadesk { Link } and see how I get on.

    Being into Notes/Domino you might want to look at the madicon RSS reader. It's a Notes database which I use and works really well.

    I use FeedReader and LOVE it. It's not free however, but it does have a trial period. Very simple and easy to use however...

    Feedreader is free indeed and is really nice. It can be found at

    I also like SharpReader which needs the .Net framework

    Welcome to the world of (Domino) blogging, Ben!

    I can recommend Bloglines, { Link } It is a web based feed reader, which is perfect if you, as I am, are working in different projects, on different machines.

    Otherwise, Sharpreader, { Link } is a good Windows .NET reader.

    I concur with Johan. I live and die by Bloglines.

    I posted the same questions a few months back and got useful suggestions. In the end, I choose FeadDeamon { Link } and bought the full version. One thing you will find is that you will spend a lot less time on your browser, all the main sites are now RSS compliant.

    PS - Welcome to the blogging world

    I use feeddemon from bradsoft. It isn't free and it's Win32 only, but I find it very easy to use;
