I have been on the search for a feed reader and really never found something that I liked. Mussie suggested that I try a reader called BlogBridge designed by one of his friends Pito. After a couple of days of using it I really like it. Nice UI, simple, fast, and open source.
Here are a couple of features that I liked:
- Subscribing to a feed defaults the url in the clipboard
- Unread marks work well for me
- Voting on feed is cool
- Tag integration
- Feed sync across computers
- Works on both Mac and Windows
