    Any Standalone Feed Reader?

    Hello all guys!
    I'm searching for a standalone program for reading RSS/Atom feeds (.xml files) directly from my hard disk.

    With FF+Sage I can specify an address like file:///C:/Work/abcd.xml and it's ok
    but I can't find a standalone program with that feature.

    Snarfer or FeedReader as example don't seem to work if the address doesn't begin with http://

    I use Desktop Sidebar which has a scrolling feed reader built in. That is absolutely all I use it for and it works pretty well.

    Thanks Rik but I don't like Desktop Sidebar: it has too much feature that I will not use.

    I just need a feed reader

    Also, you can pick one from here. The first two are good.
