    Great ap though I prefer makagiga at this point as it is truly portable & uses java too and doesn't leave a trace that I can see.

    Exported my feeds from nfreader in opml format, imported into the zip version of this, and this program did NOTHING. red x's is all I got.
    btw I had to disable my fw as after telling rssowl that it could not do a dns check it failed to open. Then of course it did absolutely nothing but import the feeds without ever grabbing anything at all.

    Excellent program. It as Search folders, or Filters, or Saved Search, something rare and precious at the same time! Google don't have this amazing tool :-) And over all that, it as the possible of using Labels... Same as Tags! A Must.

    The guy who said RSS owl doesn't hold a candle to Omea Reader is probably high.
