unstable version. Crashed on Windows Vista

OK. not bad with the css styles and what not but is not portable as is feedreader. IE, feedreader can run and does not leave files in the apdata folder. Size is smaller, and upon first opening you get a plethora of feed choices unlike this open source project.

Wow! I just found this program. I've been an avid user of FeedDemon for many years, but I like this much more.

Standard UI, great options, newsgroup reader....it's perfect for me!

Fix the use no proxy option. I use and run vidalia and no matter what you tell this it defaults to IE settings.

GreatNews still fastest RSS reader.

Still my favorite RSS reader... Donated last year even when it wasn't being updated. :)

RSSBandit is still my top of the choice for RSS reader, although I admit I have been searching for its replacement for a while. What I like about it the most is it aggregates all the unread items once you click at the feed or the category, this makes it very convenient for me to scroll those all the posts. I cannot do that easily with Outlook 2007 and OmegaReader.

What I dislike about RSSBandit is its Outlook interface, which hogs memory, and the interface would be dysfunctionally when I launch MS Money and do a few operations with it. As a UI designer for the past 8 years, I don't like fancy interface elements that have functions like the standard ones. Such eye-candy does not add much values, but it creates instability to the system.

When I tried, over 20 different readers, RSS Bandit was able to stand in the top 3 bunch, but its memory usage made me prefer GreatNews over it and RSSOwl.

It's still a good reader, but in my opinion GreatNews is better.

Been using RSS Bandit for over six months and have no complaints. It handles everything with ease and does not complicate the simple stuff.

Good solid reader. Its simplicity, clean interface and the tabbed view makes it, im my opinion, the better reader of the whole leading bunch.

Looks like a copy of FeedDemon, which is a good thing. Highly customizable, RSS Bandit has built a strong user community around itself in a short time.

Been using 1.3.0.29 since 20th April (2005). No idea why it's only just shown up on the radar here.

Great piece of kit. Highly recommended.
Excellent UI. Fast. Intuitative.
