When i press "update feeds now" I'm not able to use my firefox browser for a few minutes due to massive lagg when brief is working with the feeds.

I have a lot of feeds, over 20 and it takes so much time now to update them that I'm thinking about changing rss reader. Why does brief have to take so much ram and cpu power just to update the feeds?

I cant use my firefox at all when updating my feeds.
I will give this program 3/5 just becaus of this problem.

I hope it will be solved in the future. :)

Rubbish.
"Makes reading RSS feeds as easy and as intuitive as it gets"? I think not.
Only seems to work on sites that have a "Live Feed" option so you can't use a mix of standard rss and atom etc... like other feed readers.
Totally UNintuitive to get started, backed up by the number of people on the support forum asking "how do I add feeds?"

not sure about 3.6 issues, as I'm still using 3.5... but what I can say about my experience with this is -- the BEST rss reader you can get for firefox. even supports customization if you want to get down into the CSS and stuff. wish there were more updates though... adding a few features now and then would be nice. also haven't really used/figured out the bookmarks thing. i originally thought it sort of merged with your actual firefox bookmarks/tags to highlight feeds you would be interested in... but i think it works independently? i need to read the docs, I guess! but for an RSS addict like me, this one is a godsend. i almost want to blame the author for the years of my life lost as a result of this addon. had it never been created... who knows what great things i could have done? but at least i know when that program is coming out, or what's the story on that topic... and don't even ask me for some tips/tricks for 'X', those type feeds -- i just... can't.. stop.... READING THEM! AAHHH! to the author: how about some new features, even if they're little ones?

Great add-on, but please update compatibility to work with 3.6+.

I, too, am having the issue with Brief not opening articles in a New Tab in FF 3.6b1

One workaround I've found, however, for those that use (or want to use) Tab Mix Plus add-on (or other add-on that allows you to Lock a tab), you can set TMP to Lock/Protect/Freeze a tab by CTRL+Click [on tab], SHIFT+Click [on tab] or ALT+Click [on tab]. Doing this causes all new links to be opened in a new tab. This solves the "Open in new tab" problem, however it still will not mark items "Read" automatically, but you can use the keyboard shortcuts or manually mark items "Read".

хорошее расширение, только вот бы его допилить да 3.6 beta 1 было бы классно (хотя и так поставить можно)

In Firefox 3.6 Beta 1 the option to "Open Items in new tabs" does not work.

Could you please update for this issue to be fixed?

Brief is by far my favorite extension of its kind, but I do find it quite irritating when I'm in the middle of reading content and Brief checks for updates, blanks out the feed for a couple seconds, and then comes back from the update having lost my scroll position.

Great program but has compatibility issues with another add-on (sadly don't know which) as from version 1.2.2 it fails to check for new feeds after the initial check. Not sure if it is stuck in a loop or affected by another add-on but have to give it 3 stars. Version 1.2.1 gets 5 stars, every version since gets 1 star so have split the difference.

Hopefully one day a version will come out that addresses this issue.

Love it - very nice, and the style is even customizable. Dumped the nasty Wizz that I was using.

Great addon! But I have a suggestion ... Is it possible to have an option to show the folder's menu in the "true" firefox's sidebar?

Great add-on - really useful for aggregating all my RSS feeds in one places, love the ability to bookmark certain feed posts.

Would really like the ability to sync with other computers (bookmarked pages and feeds) - think that could be a useful addition.
