I use FreshRSS as my feed reader. It is nice and simple, but you either need to host it somewhere or have an account on someone else's server. If you'd like, I could set you up with an account on my instance. You can either give it a whirl, or if you like it, keep on using it.
Thanks for the offer. I was in the middle of accepting, when I remembered to check our hosting service. They have softaculous which does auto-installs, and tt-rss was available. I've installed it, will see if it works. If it doesn't, I might come crawling back to beg your offer renewal. :)
I use Hubzilla exclusively as my feed reader. I was using Friendica before. I tried way too many and nothing else was good enough for me.
While I have many of my feeds in Hubzilla, I don't use it as my primary reader because, once I see a message (or it loads on a page, but I don't see it), it is marked as read, making it hard to postpone messages for later. I've been using selfoss for several years now. I suppose, in some ways, it is Twitter-like in its display. Messages display in chronological order (forward or back). You can show all or just a category or just a specific feed at a given time. The only major complaint I have ever had is that the "read all" button is too prominent and I have accidentally hit a few times. Being open source, I could do something about that, if I really wanted to.
@Marshall Sutherland Selfoss was one of the offerings I could have installed, but it looked like a one-man project and I had used tt-rss before, so I went with the latter. I've not discovered how to collapse the thing down to just titles, which I'd prefer. So if I decide against tt-rss down the road, I may try your suggestion. Thanks!
