Our Download of the Day today is Feed Demon

Looking for a great way to view and manage your RSS feeds from your desktop? Look no further than FeedDemon, the most popular Windows RSS reader.

Bring the power of RSS right to your Windows desktop with FeedDemon News Aggregator:

• Get your news and information instantly.
• Customize the way you read and organize feeds.
• Download podcasts to your iPod or Windows Media Player.

The easy-to-use interface makes it a snap to stay informed with the latest news and information. You can completely customize the way feeds are organized and displayed. Set up custom news watches based on keywords or use the powerful search to find articles. You can even download podcasts and audio files and have them show up on your portable audio device.
