This is the best feed reader I've tried so far.
I just have one suggestion: I have a lot of feeds I keep track of, and they tend to fall into certain categories (hobbies, school, entertainment, for example). I wanted to make separate groups for each category and move the feeds into the appropriate groups, but NewsFox only adds a copy of the feed into the new group. It doesn't move it out of the default FEEDS group, and I can't delete it from the FEEDS group. That means that I end up with duplicate copies of RSS feeds.
If it weren't for that, I'd give this plugin 5/5.
Firefox 3 doesn't really incorporate all the features of this add-on. Here is an example of what I mean:
A lot of websites use the www before the domain name (ex. www.yahoo.com). However, when I type an address into the address bar, I don't type the www. I just type yahoo.com.
In Firefox, it doesn't find the matching URL, even though I've looked at Yahoo's homepage many times and it's in the history. And editing the about:config to set "browser.urlbar.autoFill" to true (as some people claim) does NOT do the trick.
With this extension (in Firefox 2), though, I could type just yahoo.com and it would autocomplete it for me.
An updated version for this extension would be great!
