You know that there are a few feed readers for any kind of web browsers or for desktop. It may be available for Windows or Linux or Mac operating system. But both are working is a same process. Every tool will give the opportunity to read any blog or website feed instantly.
You know Google feedburner is a popular and must have thing for every blog or websites. Without having a valid feed, you cannot get fully approved Google AdSense account. However, I don’t know whether there is any good feed reader is not but I have preferred this application for my Windows machine for the number of its endless options. You can find almost 25-30 different options inside this feed reader if you will install it on your computer.
You can read any blog or website’s feed without having any clutter. You can also set the update time of your existed feed so that it will give you most recent updates from your favorite blog. There is no need to subscribe to that blog in Google Reader or anywhere else. You just have to know the feed url of your favorite blog. For that, you can use any tactic.
A scroll bar will be appeared at the top of your screen that will bring every latest update from your selected blog(s) when there is also an option that will help you to adjust that default scroll bar.
FeedRoller – Another Windows Software to Read Feeds :-
You just have to install and configure it rightly. After installing it on your PC, you can control it by right clicking. For example, I have place a FeedRoller button at my Quick Launch bar. And when I need to set up it, I just right click on it and get options.
At first, go to Manage Feeds so that you can select or add or remove any feed. By default, you can find the following feeds;
Top Stories – Google News
World – Google News
Business – Google News
Sci/tech – Google news
Yahoo! News: Top Stories
Yahoo! News: World News
Yahoo! News: Business
Yahoo! News: Technology News
Sector – Seven Site Updates
If you want to add any feed, just click on the Add Feed button and enter your favorite blog feed url.
Here is also an option that will help you to Import/Export your entered feeds.
Now come to the Settings pane. Here are tons of sub-options under these following main options;
General – Here you will get Start Pinned, Full Screen Suspend, Item Time, Idle Time & Feed File option.
