NewsGator Online – Free Consumer Edition Released Today

NewsGator released a new version of NewsGator Online – their web-based RSS aggregator.

This version is free to consumers and includes new features including folders (manage all your feeds the same way you do in Outlook), per-post rating system, feed recommendations based on what you read, clippings (to save your favorite posts with one click), and smart feed enhancements including converting email-based alerts to RSS.

NewsGator Online includes subscription level synchronization with NewsGator Outlook Edition, allowing you to manage one set of feeds across multiple machines (I have four different computers, plus the web version with synchronized feeds.) As a result, I don’t have to worry about making sure my feeds are the same on all machines – whenever I change something on one machine (in Outlook or on the web), it synchronizes to the other machines.

There are lots of other cool features – along with a bunch of UI improvements – and more premium content relationships.

Check it out and tell us what you think.
