    Im looking for an online RSS reader that is clean and simple. I just want it to show the article headlines and then let me click them to view them.

    I used to use Google Reader but they recently changed the UI and I cant stand it. Im currently trying My Yahoo but I cant change the layout to have one column only.

    How about your browser? Here is Opera:

    That looks pretty nice except for two things:

    1. Can you view all feeds at once?

    2. I dont use Opera.

    Firefox has Live Bookmarks though I prefer something more dedicated for RSS feeds.

    Yes - click on "Read Feeds" - they appear in a continuous column in alphabetical order by feed name.

    I have tried a lot of them and found that separate programs worked best for me, so that is what I am currently using. Previously I had a love/hate relationship with the Sage add-on to Firefox. I see that there is a new Sage that works with Firefox 3 out now, too.

    I personally find Opera's Reader and Sage both very good.

    I don't know what version you are using, but here FF 3 is running fine with some extensions installed (doesn't slow down a lot like FF2). :)
