Nick Bradbury has been dropping hints about the latest iteration of FeedDemon for quite some time now. Well, yesterday he unleashed a beta of FeedDemon (2.0 Beta 1) on us. I can affirm what others are saying about the beta by declaring it a winner myself. The big wins for FeedDemon users include both small and large usability overhauls of the interface. A new filter drop down adds the capability to read all unread feeds across channels. The surfer view finally works the way I’d want it to. If you haven’t test driven FeedDemon to manage your RSS feeds in a while, maybe the time has come to revisit it now. I’ll be following up this post with a more detailed review of the new standard for RSS feed management shortly.
