Awasu (Personal Edition) review

Awasu isn’t the fastest of applications, but it does come with good links to Feedster, Technorati, NewsIsFree and Syndic8 built in. Unfortunately, this free version is limited to 100 channels, three plug-ins, three search agents and hourly updates. The default plug-ins include a Google search string monitor, but others are available that will monitor a POP3 or IMAP mailbox, save feed content directly to a MySQL database and allow the operating of Awasu as a podcast client for iTunes. A lack of pop-up blocking means the HTML display is littered with ads, but brief excerpts or plain-text options fare better. Recently viewed feeds are remembered and recalled from content tabs, and you can even switch the embedded browser from IE to Mozilla, such is the configurability on offer. An exceptional, free standalone client
