The new Active Web Reader is a freely available web feed reader that supports RSS 0.9 x, 1.x and 2.x feed formats. It takes very little space (about 1MB only) on your PC. The user can add all his favorite feeds and keep them updated. He can also save bookmarks of required web pages. The program then notifies if there are any changes in the web pages stored as bookmarks.
It also provides advanced auto discovery that allows the user to search for feeds during browsing websites. When the feeds are found they are presented to the user and can be added to the active web reader. It provides an active import and export wizard that helps importing feeds from a OPML file or directory and share feeds.

The interface is tabbed, and it is very easy to manage the feeds. It also provides better browsing, viewing, reading and navigating. It provides its user the ability to change the display style. The Active Web Reader allows the user to group the web pages and they can be updated with a single click. The various features provided by the program also include support for major feed formats, automatic checking for updates of web pages and feeds, receiving auto notifications, import-export wizard to OMPL files, organizing feeds, use of tabbed browsing, quick navigation and customization.
