NewsFire is another RSS reader for Mac that offers an intuitive user interface, though it may not come packed with as many features as NetNewsWire. Working off of iChat's user interface, NewsFire's simple two-paned layout lets news items bubble to the top like when new buddies come online in iChat. Clicking on feeds in the left pane displays news items in the right pane with brief summaries.
