Best free RSS reader for Mac

I really enjoy the application. It’s easy to use, easy to read, easy on the eyes, and does most of what I expected. I would like to see more options to change default settings or open an article in browser, but overall it’s a really nice rss reader. It should be #1 in it’s class- every other app ranked higher than Gentle Reader actually seemed to make the articles harder to read. Crazy that I had to dig to find this.

Hi, thank-you for your kind words. Do send us an email with your suggestions for setting @ - along with reading a lot, we listen even more / RE: Open an article in the browser - when your article is open - just click on the Headline ;-) that will open the article in the browser.

Warmest regards
