Times: The Latest, Greatest (and Prettiest) RSS Reader

I'm sure you're probably like me when it comes to RSS readers — as long as it does what it's supposed to do, who cares what it looks like, right?! Well at least that's what I thought until I came across Times by Acrylic, a chic new newsreader for Mac OS X Leopard users.


I know, we all get stuck in our RSS reader ways, but think about how cool it would be to make your entire reader look like a newspaper, with various sections and categories so you can easily read your feeds. With Times you can do exactly this, providing you with an entirely new RSS reading experience. There is also a neat feature called Shelf, which allows you to save and sort articles for your next coffee break, so you won't have to open 500 tabs like I usually do. You can currently download a trial version of Times at Acrylic, or purchase it for $30. For some reason, I think this is just the beginning of "beautified" RSS readers!
