Mozilla based RSS Aggregators

I've tried a few RSS aggregator's and gave up on most of them quickly because they embedded the IE control for browsing, which of course means popups, banner ads, no tabbed browsing, etc....

NewsMonster is a Mozilla based RSS aggregator. It integrates into the Mozilla sidebar, which means you get to use all of Mozilla's features in your RSS reader. Newsmonster has an impressive feature set and there's even more coming soon. Beta 1 is available now for download.

There are a few more aggregators listed on Mozdev like Aggreg8 and Satimoz, but both are in development and unavailable for download/install.

Amphetadesk is a simple Free aggregator that plays well with Mozilla. I've been using the combo every day for a few weeks now, and I really like it.

me too, amphetadesk rocks but only if you install the "outliner" customisation linked to on the amphetadesk website.

well, it seems like NewsMonger has dropped off... their site seems to just return 404...

Sadly, as of today, there is still no real solution.
NewsMonster is extremly buggy, I had problems with Mozilla-1.4 and 1.5 using NewsMonster .1.2.2

Amphetadesk is developing very slowly, in fact, it does still not fit into Apache (as apache-module).

The only nice solution I found is for Firebird. Not powerful but lean and tidy. It simply stores all RSS addresses in Firebirds addressbook (own folder) and displays them in the sidebar.
