Petrolette is a simple but powerful web app to view and manage various XML (RSS, aTom, etc) news feeds and present them in a nice, ergonomic fashion. I made it to replace the online news services (NetVibes, Google news, etc.) that I use up until around 2007, when they became bloated and **crippled with spyware**. It's a fast, simple and light system, and I've been using it for ~~weeks~~ years now ; It does what I want from a no-nonsense, every-morning-every-day news reader.

Make the page your home page, and read it every morning. You know instantly what article you've read ; We're already on the web, right? Just click and read the article. This is *so much better than TV*.
