No-ones' mentioned online readers like yet,
so I will :)

What drove me up the wall with liferea (which is a perfectly good app)
was that I had two copies - at work and home - which in my
mind is soooo 20th century.

The interface is very similar to liferea (folders, etc.) , but (of course)
your read items stay read when you get home - and it's one less window on
the desktop. It's less of a hog on other peoples bandwidth too, since bloglines
just has to grab the feed once for all subscribers.

And of course it's cross-platform :)
