RSS Newsreading Is a Game Changer

After choosing to go with NetNewsWire over Endo as my RSS newsreader/aggregator, I’ve been re-evaluating my web reading habits and noticed that I rarely visit web sites as a starting point. I have a bunch of RSS feeds that I subscribe to with NetNewsWire, and I use those feeds as my starting point. I no longer fire up my browser and go to site after site in my bookmarked favorites.

I save quite a considerable amount of time by looking at the headlines and/or summaries of the RSS feeds instead of visiting each site and waiting for pages to load. Additionally, I don’t get ads in RSS feeds that clutter up the screen or open pop-up windows. I can subscribe to much more news sources and scan them quickly in a shorter amount of time.
