Web Worker Daily published an interesting and useful comparison about today's available web-based RSS feed readers.
As the author mentions, you can read RSS/Atom feeds through desktop applications, browsers and even via E-Mail applications like Outlook. The challenge is that most of these feed readers require you to pick one method and stick with it. If you're in a feed-reading mood and you're not at the computer that has that desktop application or a full browser, then what?

Judi Sohn says: "When I'm stuck in line or sitting on a long train ride, it's a perfect time to skim headlines and catch up on some RSS-reading using my smartphone. There are quite a few applications for reading feeds on a Windows Mobile phone like mine (Cingular 8125). No problem. But when I'm at my laptop, I'd rather read the feeds on the computer than the phone's tiny screen. On top of that, I want articles I've read in one location to be marked read on the desktop and visa versa."

What's a web worker to do? Up until the past couple of years, this kind of syncing/cross-platform reading was impossible. Now, there are a few choices for those of us who want the same feeds accessible in both big and small formats at the same time, without requiring the download of a dedicated application on any platform and the Web Workers Daily took a critical look at the current crop of options - worth to read if you are a news junkie as well.

Cheers ~ Arne
