I wanted to try a different RSS reader because RSS Bandit started failing and has not been updated for years, though it still works mostly. RSS Guard takes a long time to load and has several bugs, which I could not solve. Plus, I found the program uneasy.

I researched a lot on this subject and found QuiteRSS, a spectacular and freeware RSS reader. It loads quickly, it has no bugs so far, and it has many useful features; it is updated on a regular basis as well. Please portabilize this program if possible. It works well and quickly on Windows 7.

3.1.0

Note that v3.3.7 does not support XP anymore because QT5 does not support it

Anybody using XP must go back to v3.3.5

@billon: good catch, I've notified Andrew. In the meantime just put it in the 32-bit box.
