NJ: RSS feed readers

If you don't like checking my blog only to find I haven't updated, get an RSS feed reader.

If you use Windows XP and Internet Explorer 6 (like most people), I recommend Pluck. It's what I use personally first upgrade to Firefox and then get Sage*.

If you use MAC-OS, or Linux, or Firefox, or Opera, or whatever....you're on your own. I don't have experience with other RSS feed readers. Leave a comment and cure me of my ignorance.

*Update, March 25th, 2005:
Pluck is the WORST RSS READER EVER! AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!

After MONTHS of careful tweaking and fixing, trying to get Pluck to work just right, it eventually DELETED ALL OF MY RSS FEEDS! I'm certainly not going to track them all down again and re-enter them into Pluck! How stupid would I have to be? It has taken too much of my time already.

Please, PLEASE, don't use Pluck! Uninstall it if you have it. It has committed the ultimate software sin: not being worth the price (in this case, FREE). It has negative value.
