    Hey I just happened to write a post on ReadAir. The main reason which prompted me for it was even I got bored using Google Reader for a long time now. Needed a change. ReadAir is nice. Have you tried FeedDemon or RssBandit?

    @nitinpai: I tried RssBandit before, but i don’t like it because it seems like take a lot of resources. Currently i am using FeedReader.
