This morning I was reading Richard MacManus’ post (here) on web based rss aggregators as being a separate category from desktop aggregrators. While I do prefer a desktop aggregator myself (note my affiliation with BlogBridge), I do not think that we need to split those two in two different categories. They are one category – meant to help you aggregate content, sort through your content and hopefully discover new content.
The reason that I personally prefer a desktop version is because I like my information to come to me and be able to read it even when I am not online. A web based solution to me is a destination – I have to go somewhere to read it. At any rate – according to Jupiter, people are about evenly split on that one right now.
