Newsfeed aggregators

I'm experimenting with using a newsfeed aggregator to look at all the blogs and news sites I check out routinely. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for newsfeed aggregators for Mac OS X. Presently, I'm presently experimenting with Shrook, but was wondering what experiences others have had with the available newsfeed aggregators for the Mac.


  1. Yeah, NetNewsWire is the way to go, but definitely go for the latest beta. I successfully manage 300 feeds with it by nesting folders and using smartlists.

    Other nice features:
    * You don't have to dink around looking for the "RSS" link on a website. Just add the primary URL and it'll attempt to discover it itself.
    * Integrated Search Engine queries. Interested in certain topics? Learn when a post or news story comes out on it anywhere.
    * Item flagging, so if you find something interesting but you don't have time to read it right away, you can flag it and come back to it later.

  2. Plus, Brent is a really, really nice guy who writes great software. Using MarsEdit (also by ranchero software), you can move posts from the aggregator (NetNewsWire) to the editor (MarsEdit) and post to your blogger weblog!

  3. News fire is excellent, its approach might take a little time to get used to, but its interface is gorgeous and it has interesting features.

  4. I use Blogmatrix Jaeger (which has a Mac version). It, too, can autodetect RSS feeds and had several other ways to detect changes. The biggest advantage I find with it is that it (by default) ties to your browser, rather than recreating the browser environment,

  5. Thanks, everyone, for your suggestions. I'll check them out. After having experimented with Shrook, I've decided that don't like it that much. It seems as though I can almost go through the blogs faster opening them all at the same time in tabs in Safari or Firefox.
