Both versions of Pluck are free: the browser-independent web version and the Internet Explorer-integrated option. Complete with an auto-detect RSS feature, 15-minute feed updates, the ability to add user annotations and offline reading capability, the IE option is the better bet. Display modes are limited, but both Digest view (blog-like display for skimming through large volumes of data) and List view (standard split-pane Outlook-a-like approach) work well. The killer app for this IE version is the persistent search, or Perch as Pluck calls it. As well as checking RSS feeds for articles that match keywords, you can set up a Perch to scour, sort and filter product queries for eBay and Amazon. Pluck is as good as it gets for IE.
