I like Viigo but it seems that the news feeds are a bit delayed compared with Berry Bloglines.

What do you all find to be the best reader for grabbing the most current updates?

I'm finally giving viigo a try . . . Painless installation and import of bloglines subscriptions. Looks pretty cool. FWIW, I figure the 30 minute update should be plenty frequent as other feeds will update while I'm reading one. Plus, seems you can update a channel on demand.

I updated some of my feed addresses and my vigo entries seem comparable with everyone else, so I will be on board with Viigo

akosnitzky, after playing with viigo, I'm wondering about your question. When you start viigo, it updates your feeds, and there is menu command to update an individual feed or update all feeds. So I'm wondering if you are saying there is too much delay between when a site or blog updates and when that update is actually picked up by viigo. I guess for my purposes it isn't all that big a deal unless the delay is something rediculous, which I doubt it is. Anyway, just curious.

aliharkness,
You are on target.
I am wondering what the time lapse is from the time its an article is posted to the point Viigo would be able to grab it.

I also have bloglines but do not use as an aggregator for Viigo because that would add to the delay.
