For the past few months, I’ve been using Bloglines as an RSS reader, but it just didn’t scale very well with the huge number of feeds and news entries I was accumulating. So I decided to switch back to a Windows-based RSS reader. I had two requirements, however, which (oddly) turned out to be pretty difficult to meet:
1. It had to be able to let me subdivide the RSS feeds into multiple groupings and then automatically update those groupings (some RSS readers for Windows will only update the group you are currently viewing, which makes absolutely no sense).
2. It had to be able to store all data on an external hard drive so I could go back and forth from work without having to run some silly synchronization program.
As far as I can tell, the only decent RSS client that will do this in Windows is NewzCrawler.
