Snarfer - A great starter newsfeed reader

If you're not familiar with RSS newsfeeds, they're an excellent way to keep up with hundreds of blog posts easily and efficiently. They're probably the only way to do that, in fact. Keeping up is hard to do, but feed readers make it possible to skim through a bucket load and focus on the individual posts that pique your interest.

That being said, where do you start? Lots of people like web based readers, but I prefer the ease of use and power of a desktop app. Try this one and see how you like it, why don't you?
