IMHO, Google Reader is the best RSS application available. With a bit of
patience it can be very good for cataloguing multiple news feeds.

However it sounds like you're dealing with something other than detailed
written content (70 items an hour is a fair heft), in which case you might
want to set your mail client to receive these feeds and then filter them
based on URL/content/etc.

> List members,
> I am looking for installing a shareware or freeware RSS reading application

> a) I have 60+ RSS/Atom feeds I need tracked every day. Many of these are

> stock quotes or monetary information.
> b) I keep my IE open all the time with Gmail open all through the day. So

> c) I will assign a priority to each feed. I need 2 lines of titles from the

> feeds
> with newer items need to display first. Once one item has been displayed it
> should not be displayed again. I need forward and backward navigation

> web clips and it is annoying for me because I have tons of important feeds.
> d) Ability to block various items in feeds based on keywords. For example I

> of the items, then those items should not be displayed. "Firefox"
> "Greasemonkey" "Ubuntu" "Bollywood" "Obama" "Democrats" "Republicans"
> "Dubai" and the list has some 100 block words.
> If there is such an application, please let me know.
