The interface of FeedDemon is divided into several levels. You got the header area with tools and options, the left sidebar with subscriptions, tags, watches and clippings, the main area that displays popular items on the start page, feed titles, excerpts or full articles once a feed or category has been selected.

Feed Demon can import feeds from various sources. It can import from an opml file or from external sources like Google Reader, Bloglines, RSS Bandit or Windows Common Feed List directly.

Update: The latest version of FeedDemon is 4.1, available on the official web page of the service. The feed reader is only available for Windows, and still features the Google Reader synchronization option that makes it attractive to a bunch of Internet users.

    Installed FeedDemon RC to compare it to Feedreader, – and then uninstalled it. It utilizes IE engine to show the RSS articles – and I strongly against this.
