My RSS feed reading application of choice is Google Reader. I have been using it for several years now, and it has never let me down. Now, that is not to say it could not be improved though. Here are a few ways you can make your RSS feed reading in Google Reader even better.
The Google Reader Watcher add-on is handy to have, because it will check your Google Reader for unread new posts. You can use this to keep track of how many stories you have yet to read. Checking Google Reader with this add-on is much more practical than visiting the Google Reader web site several times a day, for those RSS feed addicts out there like me.
