It´s a shame.
a buggy software where you can´t get your feeds for more than 1 reboot.
Inforss forgets all your settings.
I can´t stand it anymore, so long inforss.
Stay away from this software until the devs make a REAL fix on it.
So buggy you'll go mad. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Well..... Where do I start.
This add-on was once very good. But that was way back in 2006.
Now, saying it's buggy is a complement!!
It seems that every new version that fixes x number of problems, and then adds more features, gets worse.
I wish that more developers here and everywhere else would be a bit more quality oriented in their version releases.
1. Release v1.0
2. Fix problems and release v1.1a
If no NEW problems. THEN
3. Add features, release v1.2
4. REPEAT 2-3
I know it's not that easy, but it should be something to work toward.
People WILL USE IT w/ fewer functions and no problems.
The inverse WILL HAPPEN w/ "'bells & whistles" and aggravating bugs.
If it was a favorite car of mine, I'd do a frame up restoration.
forget his feeds Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It\'s buggy, it forgets his feeds. I read circa 10 reads a day min, and i get bored, to reconfigure this piece of shit every time, that he forgets his feeds. i am using this program for a year, but now i think, the new version is worse than the old, something got wrong in the developmentThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
Not for Dial-up users Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Not a good first experience with RSS (Win98SE, Fx 126.96.36.199, PII-266). Complicated, quirky, confusing. Things jump around and disappear, mouse interaction sometimes goes bonkers. Lack of manual control, too automatic. Not usable on dialup -- will consume the bandwidth, doing who knows what. This tool was the only way to get a podcast of mp3! But the final solution was to just view the xml source of the RSS, find the mp3 location, and use Opera download manager to get that one giant file. Maybe someone could use the infoRSS source to make a simpler, all-manual tool that lets you select all downloads from easy menus, would never use bandwidth except by user choice/command?
Does not seem "lightweight" -- slow to respond on a low-end computer.
Firefox Upgrade Erases Settings Rated 4 out of 5 stars
If you upgrade to the latest version of Firefox, be sure to back up your feedlist and settings. They get erased.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
Excellent RSS reader Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is a very powerful RSS reader. It's the only one I've found with properly working feed scroller, and it provides many options for display of the feeds. It does seem to increase Firefox resource usage a bit more than is desirable, but other than that it is an excellent addon.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
3rd or 4th try Rated 2 out of 5 stars
I have tried this add-on for the 4th or so time and it just isn't working for me. Still on the look out for something that I like. I have all of this space at the bottom and want to put the inforss there but it just won't let meThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
It's not worth it Rated 2 out of 5 stars
There is way too many options here and still it's impossible to configure it to behave like I want it to. I want it in the status-bar, fading, and use a specified size. I pretty much got it the way I want but for no apparent reason the display area is resized everytime I go anywhere near it with my mouse pointer... After speding 45 minutes trying to configure this thing I just uninstalled it and I'm now back using the default rss-bookmark-thingy in Firefox. I'll give it a 3 as I like the idea, it just seems buggy and not very user friendly.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2).
