FeedGhost is a new Windows desktop RSS reader. It has a distinct web2.0 look and is highly customizable with lots of features not found in many web based RSS news readers. To be able to run FeedGhost you need to have Windows XP or Vista and the .NET Framework 2.0 (which is free).
As a newsreader you are able to view feeds in a Google Reader river of news style view or a more familiar outlook style if you're a Windows user. There is a synchronization feature which means you can synchronize your feeds across multiple installations of FeedGhost, for example a copy on your home computer and one at work.
You are able to tag articles to make them easier to search for or to share with others. You can also email articles directly from the reader. Another useful function is the ability to create a link blog, this is basically to allow you to share articles you find in your subscribed feeds that you have tagged with others.
There is a limited free version where you are limited to 20 feeds. The Pro version is on a subscription basis for a very reasonable 20 US dollars a year.
