Feedreader worked perfectly last night, but when I booted up this morning to check my feeds, it hung twice. Annoyed, I uninstalled it.
I then tried the commercial alternative, FeedDemon from Bradsoft. I have a 20 day trial before coughing up the $30 (ie about £15) but so far it is looking good. It appears more stable, and seems to be more fully featured that the open source alternative. I guess I am going to be stumping up the cash soon.
