I hope this is okay to post this here since it isn't really a "support" question. I'm new to these forums, so I don't exactly know what goes where yet. Sorry if I'm in the wrong place!

What do you use to read your RSS feeds? (whether it be a program or an internet app) I'm new to using them and I'm looking for something extremely simple. So far I've tried using Netvibes, but sometimes it takes too long to load. It's aesthetically pleasing, but I'd like something more lightweight.

I just use Google Reader if I'm on my computer (not often), but mostly I use Byline when I'm on my iPod.
Don't mind me, I'm just lurking.

I could've googled "rss reader" if I wanted to. I was asking what you use. :/

Firefox 3. It covers the basics for me (I only RSS the BBC headlines and the local Craigslist CTO)

Are you talking about the RSS feeds as a bookmark?
