Definition from Regents of the University of California:
A software package that enables you to easily read the XML code in which RSS feeds are written. Bloglines is currently the most popular feed reader but there are many competitors.

Example sentence(s):
  • RSS feed readers offer one of the most efficient ways to follow news, web site and software updates, newsletters, blogs and more. About.com, a part of The New York Times
  • Once you have your Feed Reader, it is a matter of finding sites that syndicate content and adding their RSS feed to the list of feeds your Feed Reader checks. Many sites display a small icon with the acronyms RSS, XML, or RDF to let you know a feed is available. WhatIsRSS.com
  • Feed readers can run on your computer or you can sign up to use a feed-reader that runs on the web. If you use one of the web-based readers, you can access your feeds from anywhere you go, just by signing into the website that manages your feeds. Six Apart, Ltd.

Definition from Wikipedia:
Een feedreader is een computerprogramma dat kan worden gebruikt om de webfeeds waarop men zich wil abonneren te verzamelen en te lezen. Grofweg zijn er twee soorten feedreaders: online feedreaders en feedreaders die zijn ingebouwd in de e-mailclient of browser.

Example sentence(s):
  • Via het netwerk krijgt u een feedreader aangeboden of -als u dat mag- kunt u zelf een feedreader naar keuze installeren (advies CMB: gebruik alleen via netwerk aangeboden programma's). - RUG  

Explanation:
Ik think "feedlezer" is also possible, but I can't find an official definition of it.
However, feedreader and feedlezer both occur on thousands of websites.
