I’ve been hunting a decent RSS aggregator for Linux for some time. Liferea and Straw refresh at the speed of smell, and Sage (for FireFox) is the only RSS aggregator I know of that doesn’t aggregate. AKregator does the trick. Ragica over on KDE-apps sez:
A nice clean sensible RSS agregator for KDE. This shows a lot of promise. It doesn’t have all of the features (yet) I’d like to have (and the name has a particularly gratuitous forced K spelling), but it’s good enough to be very functional. It’s unobtrusive, and just works.
The version I’m running is a beta, and it still has a couple of crash bugs in it, but it aggregates beautifully, refreshes with lightning speed, and has a handy tray icon to update you when new feeds are available.
