Pluck used to be my RSS reader. I chose Pluck because I wanted a reader that was integrated into Internet Explorer. But Pluck developed problems: notifications of new postings that didn’t exist, Pluck server outages, unresponsive to support requests. With Pluck no longer responding to queries and no longer mentioning their RSS reader product on their web site, I went on the hunt for a new IE-integrated reader.
It didn’t take too long to come across Onfolio:
Onfolio is the easiest way to collect, organize and share your online research. Onfolio is an add-in for the Windows Live Toolbar that helps you collect and organize online content, read RSS news feeds, and share content in emails, blogs and documents. With Onfolio, you get all of these tools built into your browser for simplicity. Whether you are planning a trip, looking for a job, investigating a major purchase, or simply looking for a better way to keep up with the news that interests you, Onfolio will help you be more efficient, thorough and organized.
I’ve been using Onfolio for a few weeks now and, so far, I love it. The only problem is that your feeds are not centralized (i.e. not tied into an online account). However, I expect that problem to be cured by Microsoft (yes, Microsoft, who recently acquired Onfolio and have made it an add-in for Windows Live Toolbar).
Others have posted articles describing Onfolio in more detail. Check out: Onfolio – Two Thumbs Up and Microsoft Onfolio is a recommended MSN Toolbar add-in.
