There are a number of news feed readers available on Linux (e.g., canto, newsbeuter or tickr). Then there was Lightread, a disruptive feed reader which got discontinued. We came across FeedReader, a fresh Linux RSS client developed for awesomeness. FeedReader delivers a seamless experience with your daily news digest. Visually appealing, the look and feel of FeedReader reminds of Lightread. Currently it supports feedly and Tiny Tiny RSS as source.
