Life after Bloglines

Just in case there are any other OS X users out there who don't get on with Google Reader, and are sorry to see Bloglines shut down... I've been using Vienna RSS for the past few days and am pretty happy with it:

  • It's free and open source.
  • It does all the basics: lets you organise your feeds into folders, lets you mark things as flagged or as unread, has a couple of smart folders for "today's articles", "unread articles", etc.
  • It's mostly drivable from the keyboard, with the only exception being clicking on external links to open them (in the web browser of your choice — this is configurable).
  • I haven't come across any major bugs, just one or two niggles/missing minor features.

Edited to add: in comments, mstevens recommends Liferea for Linuxy types.

(I'm not suggesting people should stop using Google Reader — it just doesn't suit my needs particularly well.)
