Snownews is a text mode RSS/RDF newsreader (similar to what lynx is for web-browsing).
It supports RSS 1.0 feeds that comply with the W3C RDF specification and also supports Radio Userland’s RSS 0.91 and 2.0 versions. Snownews tries to remove all HTML elements from feed descriptions and converts some elements (like tags) into newlines so that total HTML looks readable.
Snownews is fast and very resource friendly.
