RSSOwl - RSS Reader

After creating a portable Scribus based on someone else's code, I decided to try creating a portable app myself, doing the launcher coding myself. (I code with Autoit rather than NSIS)

RSSOwl is an open source RSS Reader. Even though they provide a non-installer download, it still saves profile files on the computer itself. So, I've put together RSSOwl so that it does not do this.

You can download it here:
.Zip, about 5.3MB

Tell me what you think. Tell me if you encounter any problems. (Most problems you encounter are probably RSSOwl bugs... so tell them)

That's certainly a problem,

That's certainly a problem, isn't it? I had completely spaced it out. At least it works when a computer does have java on it.

I created a page for this on the Quate Newsnet (It contains more information about it):

Google Reader

I use google reader, which is a nice RSS reader by google that works in any browser. all you need is a google account, and if you use gmail, google calendar, you are already setup.

My Firefox Portable(or my home firefox) add RSS feeds right to google reader, and then I can view it from any computer, with any web browser. simple, clean, easy. I'd check it out.
