Sharpreader requires .NET Framework, version 2.0 or 1.1, to be installed on the PC or laptop device. Sharpreader is a type of software that collects content, like news stories or musicals about singing cats, and have the files available in one place. It is also used to check feeds and updating web resources. Sharpreader also detects and shows connections between items if they have the same link, or if there's any sort of relation between the two. The Atom format within the Sharpreader was developed as an alternative to RSS, and it is believed that the RSS had limitations and flaws. There's also another type of aggregator called content aggregator, which combines info such as news, sports, scores, local weather, from various sites and makes it easily attainable to its customers. Software developer, Luke Hutteman, wanted to make sure that the internet had a safer transition for people who are used to using Internet Explorer, or any other outdated search engine to enjoy the internet and work safely from home. By creating the Sharperader, Luke demonstrated that by creating several key features and staying on top of updates, the average joe to a freelance blogger, to just about anyone could use the world wide web, and not have to worry about their information being compromised.


  • Easy search weblogs and news sites for specific terms (i.e., cats, dogs, roaring 20's, pop music USA, etc.).
  • An easier way of subscribing to new feeds (dragging a link into Sharpreader, or taking time to enter it in the address bar at the top of the screen).
  • Valuable as a blogging tool, whether editing or trying to find your favorite content.
  • Advanced threading support, which allows a person to view connected items in a threaded fashion.
  • Improved handling of relative URLs in atom feeds.
  • Allow embedded CCS styles in item descriptions (previous disabled due to javascript exploits).
  • Handles all RSS versions, ATOM 3.0 and 1.0, modules like Dublin core, content:encoding, XHTML:body, etc.
  • Easy keyboard navigation to go the next or previous unread item
  • Support for proxy-servers and proxy authentication.
  • Highly useful with Windows since it is built to give easy access to RSS news feeds from websites people love and adore.

Overall, having the Sharpreader installed on any Windows device, that is, at least Windows 7 or higher, can make it very easy for an average web surfer to enjoy content safely at a click of a button.

It is free and safe to download, not having to worry about malware or worms being installed on the computer.
