I like RSS Readers for some things – catching up on news, TV listings, etc. I try not to use them too much for blog reading because – well, blogs are (generally) labors of love & I want to see what you've been laboring on. 🙂
I've been using FeedDemon off & on during the trial period. It's very good and the price ($30) seems to be about right for a good app. That being said, I downloaded SauceReader yesterday and, man, it's great. It's still in a 1.7 beta version, but I haven't seen any bugs. Very easy to use – very similar to FeedDemon. Did I mention it's free? I really like it. If your on a Windows 2000/XP computer, check out SauceReader.
One caveat to my "see"-ing statement above, both SauceReader & FeedDemon (and a lot of other readers) will load the page within a client window if you choose, so you can blog read & "blog see", too.
