My RSSOwl review

Just finished my review of RSSOwl that I promised. It was a bit critcal – particularly of the interface, but at the moment it just doesn’t meet my needs. Still, I mentioned that, the cool features that are there and what I think the RSSOwl development team should do next.

The quest to find a better feed reader goes on, and I’ll look for my next candidate soon, which might this time be a web-based offering. Still using Google IG for now then…

  1. Hi Peter,

    some comments:

    – You can enable the internal Browser via “View” > “Display Newstext in Browser”. On Linux there are some requirements to get it done so its not enabled by default. The FAQ will open automatically and give you the details once you try to enable the Browser

    – You can drag and drop Feeds from Firefox into RSSOwl. Better support for Firefox is planned for the future (e.g. automatic addition of Feeds from Firefox)

    Thanks for the tips, Ben. Although I was quite critical (particulary of the interface), RSSOwl isn’t far off the solution I’m looking for.

    If you add an at-a-glance view mode (to see all feeds at once) and do up the interface a bit, I’ll definitely come back and take another look.
