Snarfer RSS Reader

Some friends have just launched Snarfer, a new Windows RSS reader, designed to be fast, efficient, and easy to use. Check it out!

    Google Reader (and other such toys) is next in my series of Web2.0 stuff. It is a nice piece of software that works _almost_ 100% for me. The fact that I have to manually look at it (it doesn’t give me a popup notification) kills the program for me—but I do a lot of surfing from home…
