Can I use it for free?
Yes, of course it's free of charge.
Is the distributed code of open source Fastladder identical to that of "livedoor Reader" or "Fastladder" hosted by livedoor?
Yes and No. Javascript code, image files, and some HTML files are identical, but server-side code has been re-written for open-source distributions.
Can I share it with multiple users?
Yes, but it is not designed to handle thousands of users, so, possibly, it may become uncomfortable when it's shared with large number of users.
Can I read feeds with authentications?
Yes, by registering such feeds in the form of http://user:password@example.com/.
