InoReader (opens in a new window) is popular RSS reader. It is clean, simple and powerful, and displays articles is several formats.

Netvibes (opens in a new window) offers a wide range of "widgets" and apps to access web feeds, tweets and other kinds of dynamic content.

Add-ons/Extensions for browsers and web-apps for smartphones and tablets combine many of the advantages of desktop readers and web-based readers like Google Reader. They have a small footprint and can be "instantly" installed/uninstalled as well.
