What is Akregator?

Akregator is a KDE application for reading online news feeds. It has a powerful, user-friendly interface for reading feeds and the management of them.

Akregator is a lightweight and fast program for displaying news items provided by feeds, supporting all commonly-used versions of RSS and Atom feeds. Its interface is similar to those of e-mail programs, thus hopefully being very familiar to the user. Useful features include searching within article titles, management of feeds in folders and setting archiving preferences. Feeds can be displayed in a similar manner to e-mails. Websites related to a feed can be shown in Akregator's embedded browser or, at the users' choice, opened in an external browser.
