News readers

News readers, or aggregators as they are sometimes called, are programs that harvest and manage news items from various news feeds. When you find feeds of interest, you can use a news reader to "subscribe" to that feed, allowing you to be notified of new headlines almost as soon as they are published.

There are a variety of different kinds of news readers available, from websites that you can access from anywhere, to client-side applications that can be configured to notify you of news while you aren't even navigating the Web. The following is just a partial listing of some of the more popular readers...
