My [never-ending] RSS Aggregator search...

Last week I posted about NewsGator and how they now allow free accuonts to sync your RSS feeds with NewsGator Online as well as read them (aka: bloglines). Well, I just uninstalled NewsGator. First of all, the online feed managment is a PITA... it was a royal pain trying to get my 150+ feeds into the folders I like to have them in. It also didn't seem to sync correctly, but I didn't give it much of a chance beacuse the online feed management just drove me crazy. I also remembered how frustrated I'd get when I would have to manually categorize my feeds into the folders... and when you read blogs between two machines, that's a PAIN to setup. So, I'm back to Omea Reader 1.0.1 which isn't perfect, but pretty damn close. Oh, looks like Angus is doing the same "Search for the holy [RSS] Grail"....
