Summary: A fruity RSS aggregator
Pears is a three-pane newsfeed (RSS/RDF) aggregator. It has a clean,
uncluttered interface, it's easy to use and works on Windows, Linux
and MacOSX.

Pears has the following features:
    * caching of downloaded items, with cache size configurable per
    * read/unread management and deletion capabilities on a per feed,
      per topic or overall basis
    * automatic and quite frequent saving of downloaded data so
      hopefully nothing will ever be lost
    * regular auto-updating, configurable per feed
    * ability to display changes in updated items
    * shortcut key access to most functions, but also mouse-driven
      operation (right-click to update a feed, right-click to toggle
      read/unread status for a topic in a feed) and automatic
      read/unread toggling
    * stores everything in plain text (as Python data structures, no
      registry use under Windows)
    * quite good performance (on my Athlon XP 2000+/512Mb it has no
      problems handling my 2.5 Mb test file - the equivalent of about
      100 quite large feeds or some 500 small ones)
    * all options and downloaded data are stored on a per-user basis.
      In other words, it should be enough to install one copy of
      Pears on a computer and have that copy be used by different
      users with different preferences and feeds.
    * just generally well behaved
    * no ads, no nags, free and open source (GPL)
