Editors' Review

This simple RSS reader provides the standard functions, with a couple of bonus features thrown in. Tristana offers the standard three-paned interface, with news channels on the left, headlines on the upper right, and a viewing window in the lower right.

Only a few example newsfeeds come with the program, so you'll need to find more on your own. Fortunately, the search box on the top of the interface helps you find RSS feeds by keyword. You also can click the Add Content Channel button and enter RSS, XML, or RDF links you find at your favorite sites; the program tells you how to do it if you need help. Unlike some readers, the viewing window offers convenient Forward and Back buttons so you can move around in pages you're reading.

Also, you can choose whether you want to view a story in the viewing window or in an external browser. Overall, we think Tristana is a great free reader for newbies who want to check out RSS.

"Simple, And not so effective"

Looks good
It does work
The theme would be good for a Firefox fanatic


Very humble
Doesn't accept some feed sources


I originally downloaded this ages ago because it looked good, when i tried to put some of my feeds into it it rejected some of them for some reason. Then something happened on my computer a few days later and i had to restore my system, then the reader was gone.

So i downloaded it again some time later and as soon as i restarted my computer (Sony Vaio running Vista home premium SP1)it crashed and frose, the only way i could sort it out was to start my laptop in safe mode and do another system rstore, and after that my laptop was fine. AND I WON'T DOWNLOAD IT AGAIN !!!!!!!

I have used this reader for over 4 years and with each version it just gets better.


Better search options would be nice.
