Not a traditional RSS reader as you’re limited to pre-selected sites. However, their selection is very large. Great site for keeping up with current news.
An interesting site. You group feeds into collections which you can views as a blog-like feed. You can also view other user’s collections. Again, not a traditional RSS reader, but definitely worth a look.
Another site with many pre-selected options to create feeds from. Simple UI with a blog-like layout.
