I had a bit of time available today, so decided to try out Pluck, which styles itself as the #1 browser-based RSS reader. Clearly some people like it - it's ZDNet and c|net editors choices for example. I'm trying to get my head around why they think so, since I thought it was one of the worst bits of junk I've ever put onto my PC. The installation was poor, the instructions were almost meaningless, and it took up a huge amount of space in the IE browser window. It replicated stuff that's already there, it has a poor to useless search interface (it certainly didn't work when I tried using it), it was slow (and I've got a fast pc) and I absolutely loathed it.

Of course, that's just my opinion, and yours may well differ. It came off my system almost as quickly as it went on, and I most certainly won't be going back to it again.

Comments:
I agree. It was quite promising when it started off, but improvements didn't improve it, and it is just too slow and clunky.
