And now $1.99 on the App Store...lame

Clicking on the menu icon shows your feeds. Hovering over a feed shows current articles. Click on a title, it opens in your browser. Articles aren't stored on your machine, so there's no accumulation of old news to delete. Fast & lean. Works under Snow Leopard.

I've been using RSS Menu for a while now and I haven't had any of the problems that bitnix talked about. It runs smoothly, tucked away in the menu bar until you call upon it.

I've finally decided to stop using this. It's always been pretty iffy, with problems such as feeds being suddenly removed form my list, program crashes, etc.

If it worked flawlessly, I have to admit that this would have been the best RSS reader out there.

I've turned to the free Vienna alternative.

This app is awesome for "feed grazing" -- things like comment feeds on blog posts that you want to follow, temporary lists and company-oriented action items (like with 37Signals' Basecamp).

LOVE the app! I agree with the above comment, the RSS icon is a lot better then the default one.

I've been using this for a while and I love it, but the addition of the official RSS icon option is a very welcomed addition.
