I just discovered the web feeds bookmarking feature of the new browser. I've used some other RSS readers on my 8700 (and haven't been satisfied). I'll see how web feeds works out for me.

Anyone have much experience with this?

So how do you access the RSS bookmark feature?

Browse to a XML/rss feed (usually the rss link of a page/blog), and add a bookmark. There will be an option for frequency of update.
The browser parses the feed with a collapse/expand view of headlines and summaries, and you can link to the full article.
I think it saves the summaries for off-line viewing.

I've used this on my Pearl and it works as well as any other RSS reader (they all seem to have their different ways of displaying data).
