Aggregate this!

Avid surfers: Suffering from information overload? Wired’s top news story on news aggregators got me checking out a few alternatives to Feed Reader, which I currently use as a free, standalone program to read my favourite weblogs and other syndicated news. In the end, I settled for Newsmonster, which integrates with your web browser. This is what it looks like, when installed into Mozilla. Cool, eh?

It works pretty well, save for a few kinks. For instance, the aggregator managed to provide me with paragraph-long excerpts of CNN news, but didn’t work as well with the Guardian website, where all it listed was the nav bar.

    Hmm, this sounds interesting 😛
    You use Mozilla as your primary browser? Have you tried the ‘most talked about’ Firebird (also part of Mozilla)?
