I've been using online RSS readers for a long time, but was never able to find a single service that gave me everything I wanted. I've reviewed the answers on this question and figured that I would give a software RSS reader a try.

However, what are the pros or cons of using software instead of webware? I know the obvious RAM and CPU usage, but is it that significant?

One pro is that you can access your feeds offline, read everything you want, and when you go online, It'll (if that program supports it) synchronize. I use Google Reader, I've tried from Thunderbird to FeedDemon, but I prefer GReader, because I read frequently from the original page, not the text that it gives me.
