RSSOwl is a platform-independent News Aggregator written in Java … It lets you gather, organize, update, and store information from any compliant source in a convenient, easy to use interface. But since it’s written in Java, then I don’t think it would be the fastest aggregator out there .. Wish I had the chance to try it … Here is a tutorial in case you want to give it a try.

Snownews is yet another Console based News Aggregator with some cool features … It has a customizable color support, fully customizable key bindings and supports plugins/extensions.

To sum things up:
There is a variety of choices, and no one will decide for you, this article is just meant to assist you in your choice and save you sometime. For me, I’ve used Liferea when I was a GNOME user and now since I moved to KDE, I’ve been using Akregator as it’s full of powerful features as you can see … Console based aggregators are cool and are really worth a try.
