On the search for a usable RSS reader

I’ve been looking for a decent RSS reader for a long time, without success. Most of the time, I’m using Sage, a firefox extension, but I’m not really happy: I’d like to read blogs as quickly as possible, scan through them without much hassle, and I certainly don’t want to be bothered by feeds that have no news. Just give me the bare essentials.I guess what I’m ultimately looking for is an RSS reader that — finally — gets me back to the user experience that I would get with the good old nn(1) news reader. Amazingly, Google Reader gets closest so far.
