RSSOwl is a freeware RDF and RSS newsreader written in Java using SWT as graphic library.
A lot of websites use RSS & RDF as XML-formats to publish their news for free. There is also a huge number of free accessable weblogs (so called blogs), which use this format too.
With RSSOwl it is possible to read all RSS versions (includes RDF). For best performance, SWT is used as graphic library. SWT makes it possible to have a operating-system-dependant, native Look & Feel of the application.
RSSOwl runs on Windows (98/ME/2000/XP), Linux (GTK2) and Mac OS X. For an easy execution of the application, the windows version comes with a batch-file, the Linux version with a Shell-Script and for Mac, an Application Bundle is used. You only need the Java VM (Virtual Machine) installed.
