I can't believe this actually passed me by. NewsGator, an online RSS aggregator service (both free and subscription-based) has bought up Ranchero Software and along with it, NetNewsWire which is probably the most popular standalone RSS reader on the Mac. They too bought FeedDemon some months ago, which is for Windows. Collectively, they've got all 3 bases covered and I suspect that gives them the largest market share of any RSS-related company.What this means for us NNW users is yet to be seen, but I believe the first thing they would be doing is integrating synchronisation of your subscriptions between NNW and NewsGator so you can keep up to date with your feeds from any browser.
