PulpFiction is a RSS/Atom feed reader. Featuring a familiar Mail-like interface, PulpFiction will fetch, organize, and display news and articles from thousands of weblogs and websites.

Leveraging Mail's familiar interface and ease of use, PulpFiction throws some serious muscle behind your news reading. Powerful, flexible filters move, mark, and process articles. Flags, sounds, and dock icons alert you to new or important posts. AppleScript support allows you to extend PulpFiction to work with your entire digital hub: Mail, Safari, the Finder, and more.

Version 1.1.0 is much faster. I don't use many of the extra options, so I don't care much for those.
NewsFire has a hard time remembering what news i've already read, and it has no "preview" pane which is annoying. It's also less stable.

Oddly enough, a marriage of NewsFire and PulpFiction would be ideal.

seeing as how the developers of both are complete twits, maybe it'll happen!

Using the Mail metaphor for RSS feeds is something I find to be miss-placed. A more hierarchal viewer is something that makes more sense to me, let alone being more organized.

I'll stick with NewsFire, at least until it exists beta and they start charging for it. Then maybe I'll use one of these other RSS aggregators.

Newest version seems to fix a bunch of annoying little bugs, seems much quicker. Can't beat the price. I use it daily.

Seems a nice RSS reader. But I could not use it so far, sice it quits itself when I try to import an OPML file or simply add a new subscription. :

I had to delete all related stuff (preferences, etc.) and import the OPML file again, then it worked. The only thing I miss is way to group or agregate the news, so I could move from a source to another quicker. Maybe a filter option, as it looks like an email client. =)

For filters, we offer PulpFiction (the non-Lite version). :-)

I recommend at least giving this a try, it's not perfect, but it works well for me, I use it daily.

Oh, and it doesn't appear to be leaking any (or at least not noticeably anyway) memory on my system.

Unimpressive. I didn't care for the interface, which copies Apple Mail much too closely. I don't read RSS like I read email. Also leaks memory like a sieve. I'm sticking with NetNewsWire Lite. The latest beta even does Atom feeds.

Not worth the hype. I'm severely underwhelmed by this. Probably has a limited lifespan anyway, since RSS seems like a no-brainer feature for Safari 2.0.

This is perfect for the casual and "lite" weight RSS reader. I'm sure loving this app, as it allows me to read the few feeds I stay on top of.

Also, it imported my OPML file just fine.
