Cool, but where is it downloadable from? It's not obvious on or on the sourceforge site.

RssBandit is the best feedreader I have used.

But it still has one bad thing: it starts a number of threads that consumes CPU, memory and internet connection resources.

Why not have the choice to download all feeds one after the other, like send/receive dialog in Outlook Express?

What will cause this cryptic error message?

Refresh feed 'Technology\Lotus Notes\Dec's Domino Blog' failed with error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
