The program is called RSSMate.RSSMate is a freeware rss/atom/podcast reader designed to be simple and straight forward.When i say simple,i mean RSSMate doesn't get into catagories and multiple layout schemes.When i say straight forward,i mean you punch in your feed link and it reads it.Done and done,no glitter but pure gold in my opinion.
Now,that being said and given my glorious opinion,this is where my opinion is coming from.I'm a user who doesn't use hundreds or thousands of feeds,i'm more into reading around twenty or thirty feeds,if that.If you are a user that reads somewhere in the range of fifty feeds and up,RSSMate might be too cumbersome for your needs.I believe it could handle it,but you might end up in "scrolling" hell.
The author of this program,Angus Johnson,gained some fame as the creator of Resource hacker back in the day.
