Comments on: My RSS Feeds Linux. GNU. Freedom.

Well, Bloglines wasn’t really “cutting” it for me, so I was still on the lookout for a good web-based RSS reader. After having tried many RSS desktop applications for my reading, mainly, Thunderbird, Sage in Firefox, Liferea, Straw, Akregator, and even FeedBurner, NewsGator and SharpReader in Windows, and a few web-based RSS apps, namely Google Reader, Bloglines and FeedLounge, I’ve come to the conclusion that all RSS readers suck.

And there are plenty of plugins and themes to boot. Plenty of things you can change yourself.

By: Aaron Wed, 18 Apr 2007 00:32:56 +0000 nesohu- Bloglines has many advanced features that aren't yet implemented in Google Reader. Also, as you mentioned, there is no search in Google Reader, which is a major drawback. Bloglines is just superior.

Jeremy- This is Broken is great. I love it.

By: Jeremy Teale Wed, 18 Apr 2007 00:09:06 +0000 Thanks for the feeds. This is Broken will forever entertain me now. Unfortunately the Planets are my primary reading source so I've nothing to suggest.

By: Aaron Wed, 18 Apr 2007 00:07:07 +0000 Adam- Thanks. I hope to find more, and post them also.

Jason- I haven't used Sage in a long time, but I use Google Browser Sync. I should look back into it.

aleska- I used Google Reader also, but Bloglines is superior. I would love to see at least Planet Ubuntu show their feeds as well. I am just as curious to see what others are reading.


By: nesohu Wed, 18 Apr 2007 00:06:59 +0000 why not use Google Reader instead? Web-based, juz export your feeds inside and forget about it. Google does the rest of the work for you.

The only downside I found so far is that there's no search toolbar. Otherwise, everything is the way I want it. 🙂

By: aleska Tue, 17 Apr 2007 23:37:51 +0000 Thanks for this post Aaron.
I personally use google reader.
It would be great if you could get the rest of the planet's talking heads to post a) their reader of preference and b) what feeds they personally subscribe to.
I hope that doesn't violate some special terms of being an Ubuntu Planeteer 😉
But it would be cool to know what Mark , Fabian, Herman, Jeff and all the others read on a regular basis.
Thanks and keep up the great work.

By: Jason Jones Tue, 17 Apr 2007 22:50:08 +0000 I used Liferea back in the day too, then tried Bloglines for awhile. But what I've been using for about a year now is Sage, the Firefox plugin. It looks nice, works pretty slick, and coupled with the Google Browser Sync, I can't lose. Whenever I setup a new computer, all I have to do is go download Sage and Browser Sync and I am in business in minutes! 🙂
