    You don't seem to have very much to do with your days, eh? But sure it would be a nice feature.

    sharpreader - reads RSS feeds

    now, i have never heard of Atom feeds before but from what i gather, RSS feeds and Atom feeds seem pretty similar to me so afaik they are they same thing but with different names : \

    (correct me if im wrong)

    but sharpreader should do what you want mini

    I also use NewsFire RSS, it's very nice. The other option would be NetNewsWire.

    There's always Google Desktop, which has many other advantages other than just being a feed reader for your desktop..

    "There's always Google Desktop"

    ...but not on the Mac :)

    "which has many other advantages other than just being a feed reader for your desktop.."

    ...those advantages are already built into OSX 10.4 ;-P
    (Spotlight, Safari RSS etc.)

    ...these are quite good standalone newsreaders. despite the RSS support in Safari, Firefox, and Opera, the majority of the people still use a separate newsreader.

    PS: this is also a nice one:

    I made a dashboard widget - its at my site, you'd just have to chenge the path to the RSS feed.
