Feed Your Reader

This Google search led to this post from Nick Bradbury, which led to this extension for Firefox: Feed Your Reader. With proper link credit given, let's carry on to why this find might be important to you (after a short background explanation).

Firefox's Live Bookmarks feature serves as an elegant introduction to feed aggregation for the novice user. And its simplicity largely reduces the learning curve for syndicated content.

This said, I'm not an average user when it comes to Atom, RSS, etc. I've got 270 subscriptions at the present moment in NetNewsWire, my client of choice.

Feed Your Reader allows you to use the RSS Autodiscovery in Firefox to launch external aggregators...

By taking control of the Live Bookmarks button, the Feed Your Reader extension has provided an elegant advanced solution to news aggregation outside of Firefox.

Mozinet, I don't use online aggregators or RSS reader extensions, so this plugin wouldn't help me out...

It doesn't deal only with these :

- You can add RSS feeds to external readers using feed:// protocol.

- Add the URL to the clipboard.

For me the + is that this extension is localised in French.

Personally, I use BottomFeeder.

I'm the author of Feed Your Reader. If someone wants to contribute a French Translation of FYR, I'm more than willing to accept it.

Adding to the clip board is a good idea.

Hi Michael,

You can contact extensions.geckozone.org which centralizes the French extensions. They contribute to many projects.

That sure doesn't sound like "beyond a reasonable doubt," does it? Phrases like "more credible" combined with specious reasoning like "did not act traumatized" seem more suitable to a civil lawsuit or a dorm room bull session than to a criminal prosecution. Kevin Hayden, who knows the victim, has more here and here (in comments).
