FeedDemon Portable, Free Windows RSS Reader!
"Long thought of as one of the best RSS and Atom feed readers around, ... FeedDemon's performance could be a lot better—its RAM usage was hefty and even 3GB of RAM didn't prevent occasional program hang-ups. ... Still, FeedDemon remains a favored option for desktop feed management." —Seth Rosenblatt, download.com (January 26, 2010)
FeedDemon is the most popular RSS reader for Windows, with an easy-to-use interface that makes it a snap to stay informed with the latest news and information.
   FeedDemon was discontinued in June 2013. You can still download it for free, but it won't be updated and support for it is no longer available.

  • Make sure it exits cleanly before plugging out your thumbdrive.
  • You can help by sending request to the official developer to add "portable mode" to their future release.
