Mac, Linux, Windows—we can do that. Not many RSS aggregators can say that Why, you ask?
Why indeed. Because we believe in access, democracy, and the free flow of information. Because we think people should have really good tools to navigate this huge exuberant experiment we call the World Wide Web. Because whether you are a student with a Mac or a granny with an older HP, a prisoner, a fat cat, a Bulgarian accountant, or the CEO of a white-hot start-up, it should not matter what kind of operating system or computer you have. Good tools should be useful for everyone. It’s just plain wrong to build great stuff for one platform.
Also, if we can toot our own horn for a moment—lots of users in the Unix world have told us that BlogBridge is the best RSS feed reader available on Linux, period. (Read some of their quotations here.) Of course, on certain other platforms we do have some worthy (and some non-free) competition but even there we’ve also developed quite a following. Why? Because, with BlogBridge, you definitely get more than an aggregator. You get the ideas and guidance of real human beings.
And by the way, let’s say you use Windows at the office and a Mac at home and Unix when you go to the lab: if you use different computers at different times of the day, BlogBridge can synchronize your feeds. No one else can do that.
Not surprisingly, BlogBridge is also Open Source.
