with all those RSS readers now available, which one stands out ahead?

One thing: it looks like RSS feeds mostly represent a partial text of an article, often being the first part thereof (as opposed to full, condensed). One still has to connect to the website to get the whole story.

Have I observed this correctly? Did I miss some setting? Has it changed since I last tried an RSS reader?

I bought a copy of Egress about a year ago v2.1 and use it every day. It was one of the best at the time but is there anything better available now?
There is also nothing on the Egress web site regarding updating an existing version - does anyone know if updates for existing owners are available?

You should be able to upgrade for free. It's a .x release and the developer's really good about upgrading.

I've been using Egress since 1.x and I think its a great product.

As to the amount of the content, thats not a limitation of the Reader or the format. Thats a decision of the publisher. For example, if you subscribe to Groklaw you'll get all of it. And I mean all of it. 8O

One reason I purchased Egress was its ability to syncronize with Bloglines. It would update articles I had already read via the Bloglines website so that I was only looking at new posts when I used Egress on the Pocket PC. I have been very happy with it.
