I switched my feed reader

Before I have read the news feeds I am inter­ested in via the Fire­fox plu­ginbrief”. It did all I wanted it to do, but I had all the data and meta­data (all the feeds and read items) only in one browser. I was not able to have a shared state at work and at home.

Now I installed rnews on my web­server. It is multi-user capa­ble, so that mul­ti­ple peo­ple can read the feeds they are inter­ested in, with­out the need to have mul­ti­ple instal­la­tions. I can use it from any place where I have an inter­net con­nec­tion, with­out los­ing the state.

It is in the FreeBSD Ports Col­lec­tion as www/rnews.

    I have to say that no local RSS reader that I tried (Brief was nice, but quite CPU-intensive) matches up to Google Reader. I know keep­ing ser­vices local is sec­ond nature to us open source peo­ple, but in all hon­esty: can’t fault the Google RSS service ..
