Unless you have unlimited time and resources on your hands, you're probably familiar with newsfeeds. There just aren't enough hours in the day to visit all the sites you're interested in, so you've subscribed to a bunch of feeds to bring that information to you. Everybody's got their favorite newsreader, the tool that lets you keep an eye on all those feeds. Here's another one you might want to take a look at.

GreatNews calls itself "the intelligent RSS reader." The intelligence seems to be in the myriad ways it lets arrange and rearrange your feeds and keep an eye on what's happening in the world. You can choose a layout as simple as a list to catch headlines to one as complicated as a newspaper page, displaying whole articles in fullscreen mode. Organize items with labels, or create filters to highlight new items that are particularly of interest to you. It robustly supports import and export of subscriptions, so it won't take you days to configure it to monitor all your current subscriptions.

GreatNews is available with a full-on installer, as well as a ZIP version that gives you only the most important bits, suitable for installation of a USB thumb drive. It's a Windows application and should be right at home on your Win2k (or later) system.
