Strider is an RSS reader or aggregator. Easy to use with a built-in Web browser so that you don't have to use a different application each time you're browsing a headline. Dynamic support for eBay auctions which means that feeds that are identified as eBay providers will be refreshed even though they've been read, this as long as you archive them. Numerous shortcuts for almost every functions and easy navigation. Most affordable RSS reader in its class!

What's New

Version 1.2.1:
  • New preference to set background color for the number of unread headlines
  • Set any new eBay feed to automatically refresh archived headlines
  • Fixes a problem where unread headlines would not be deleted after the delay set even if the Only forget read headlines was not selected
  • Improves compabitility with sites that would not previously load in Strider


  • OS X 10.3 or later
  • Could possibly work under OS X 10.2.8 with Safari 1.0 but this is untested
  • Fully compatible with OS X 10.4 or later (Tiger)

The eye ball showing whether a headline has been read or not has to go. Or, there should at least be an option to change the graphic. I am a registered owner of Newsfire, and this program has features I am interested in. The floating eye ball thing bugs me enough, however, that I don't like keeping the program open.

With Tiger looming and safari RSS on it's way, which will effectively give you this functionality one has to ask why.

Tiger's Safari RSS implementation is pretty crude. SRSS is an RSS reader. It just presents the RSS XML as something other than (to most people) gibberish. Applications like this are aggregators. They specialize in mining through the xml quickly and efficiently. This one here is no NetNewsWire, but it's pretty good. I like NNW's tab implementation better, but tihs is a thoroughly competent setup. Arguing that any application developer shouldn't bother is ludicrous. Competition is where growth comes from.

Mr. Andre,

I appreciate your comments. I've looked initially at NetNewsWire Lite, recently at the latest beta. I'm not sure I understand what you are referring to when you mention "I like NNW's tab implementation better". Could you enlighten me?

Mercury, the reasons are simple:
1. The entirety of the Macworld aren't going to shift to Tiger overnight
2. A lot of people don't like Safari
3. People like choice

These may be a few reasons why developers keep bringing out apps such as this with a fuller feature set than Safari and some other RSS apps.
