Akregator is a news feed reader for the KDE desktop. It enables you to follow news sites, blogs and other RSS/Atom-enabled websites without the need to manually check for updates using a web browser.
Yes, we know that Kubuntu is going to be unsupported and that it would be much better to focus on GNOME, but hey, why should we leave all those KDE lovers in despair?
Do you still check your favorite websites one by one? Well, if you do, it is time to stop. You may not have noticed it but there is plenty of RSS readers out there, and Akregator is one of the best ones. What is an RSS reader? It's something that enables you automatically check what's going on at your favorite website and that is able to notify you when some new article or post comes out. Akregator, which is built to be fully integrated with KDE, takes its fancy features right at the earth of your KDE desktop environment. What makes Akregator vastly superior to other solutions is that, while being fully-featured, it still manages to be light and not system-impairing. If you need something able to automatically check feeds, and that is light and integrated with the K desktop environment then it is time to check Akregator out. You won't be disappointed. This runs perfectly on GNOME desktops too.
Do I use Akregator? Sure I do, whenever I use a KDE environment. It's clear that having a light way to keep yourself informed, instead of checking your favorite website one by one is something you should definitely be able to do on your Linux box and, trust me, Akregator is one of the best ways to achieve it.
