Best Free RSS Feed Reader?

    Hi guys,

    Since Onfolio keeps crashing my IE 7, I'm in the search for a similar RSS Feed Reader.

    I love Onfolio because is simple and has enought good features but is unusable after 3-4 minutes of use, popping a "Buffer Overflow" message (actually my antivirus does).

    Any suggestions?

    I use sharpreader at the moment. Even though I haven't used any other free readers I'd have trouble describing it as 'the best'. 'just adequate' would be better, but it does the job.

    The feature I liked the most in Onfolio is the "Reading List" where you select articles for a later reading.
    After you read the article you just remove it from the list.

    Is that supported in sharpreader?

    I've been using Google Reader (http://reader.google.com) for probably 6 months now and have been extremely pleased. I use to use Bloglines and I like Google Reader much more.

    Reader also supports Staring articles that you want to read later. It puts them in a special Starred Items list and when you're done reading it you can just remove the star. You can also create a Shared Feeds list and then give your friends the RSS to that so you can share all your favorite articles with them. Pretty kool stuff.

    I too have started to migrate things from Onfolio to Google Reader.

    A good way to save stuff for future reference is, if you don't want it local, to "searchle" links with tags.

    Searchles | MK's posts

    They've just changed the thing to allow private groups. I wouldn't use it for senstive stuff, but as a quick on the fly archive with tags it works fine.

    How does that qualify as "free"?

    I've found the RSS reader built into IE7 to be adequate for my needs.

    I used to use RSS Bandit (which is a great piece of software) but since I only really follow a few feeds and want to be able to do so from any computer, I've pretty much switched to live.com.
