Well, that depends on your flavor of Linux.  Debian has several, and 
slackware 13.0 and beyond have snownews installed.  It should be possible 
to write a mime entry to have snownews fired up whenever an rss link gets 
read by the browser, but then you'll be reading contents of rss links 
using lynx snownews default browser afterwards.On Thu, 10 Jun 2010, Tim
