Bamboo Feed Reader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used Sharp Reader for years, until I tried something new. Let me tell you your add on is outstanding. It's like driving a Ford then getting into a Porsche. After one day I was as familiar with it as could be. Thank You again.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9). 

Saved elements Rated 5 out of 5 stars

First, I would like to thank you for this very good add-on. It is really very useful and easy to use.

But it could be perfect if we can to export into a file (text format or xml) the saved elements with the title and the description of each feed. It would be a sort of summary or report of interesting feeds.

Thanks a lot again for this little soft ;-)

Thank you for your review.

This evolution is already planned.
The saved articles feature will be improved in the next major release.

Memory leaks Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Bamboo does exactly what I want it to, but the memory leaks severely limit its usability to the point of needing to restart Firefox way too often. Unfortunate

Re: Yes i know Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I know this is in Firefox but I wonder why it is not available in a single addon for Thunderbird (checked dozens of them). Anyway thank you - the addon itself works well

Excellent add-on, but maybe you should add backward compatibility with live bookmarks for firefox sync or you should add your own sync server/integration with exist server. First would be perfect. Anyway, i love it.

Presque parfait (le retour) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Juste PI, ma critique ci-dessous mentionnant ce bug de redimensionnement des popup ne concernerait que certaines config !... Constaté sous Windows 7 & Linux + cartes AMD/ATI (HD3450 ou 4650), mais OK sous Win XP+ chipset Intel G41... (CQFD)

Bamboo feed reader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When Google reader warned of going out I had to look for another reader. Feedly seemed to be getting all the press, so I tried it. I was happy with it for awhile then they changed it. the left columns only showed with a mouse over then disappeared when the mouse moved away. This and other changes made it very annoying,so I tried Bamboo.

Bamboo works flawlessly. The thing that stands out most is that it is an extremely clean interface.
I highly recommend Bamboo!

The best replacement for Google Reader and Google Reader Watcher that I have found.

Great interface, good reader Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really like this reader, it has most of the features a "normal" user would be looking for.

Some "quick wins" that would be nice:
- Show the year in the article timestamp
- Adjustable time for article retention
- When clicking on a feed title in an aggregated list, expand the containing folder when drilling down to that feed

Some "power" features that would be nice would be:
- Saved searches/filters
- Make all settings customizable for individual feeds
- A "reading pane" so you can see the article list and article content at the same time

Thank you for this great reader, for now I think it is the best Firefox-based reader available, with "Brief" being a close 2nd.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

so i was enjoying this addon until a blackout in my house happened some 15 minutes ago. when i restarted, all feeds were gone, so i guess i'll start saving again the 50+ feeds i had there... on a more reliable reader that is.

Does not work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Everything imported fine, but it has not updated since I installed it. Going to use Feedly instead.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.1). 

DOES WORK

Once you have imported your feeds you need to click on the "update" button (or activate automatic updates).
I think it is not so complicated.

Saying "does not work" is simply a lie.

wrong save location Rated 4 out of 5 stars

it is hard to backup

Great reader, but text is unreadable with blue theme (version 1.8.1) Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Version 1.8.1 has a bug where the article's text appears white on the white background if the blue theme is selected (meaning you can't read the text). Looks like this issue started with version 1.8. Other than that this is a great reader.

1.8 broken Rated 2 out of 5 stars

after update to 1.8 opening TB results in a javascript error "impossible to show view. b.ui is undefined" - is this extension only tested with Firefox while it makes zero sense to have it there instead TB which would also explain the terrible CPU load running insinde TB instead FF

it is not tested with Thunderbird, it works magically !

Still the best but a flaw in 1.8 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Still the best feed reader I have found, but in v1.8 selecting the blue theme turns the details text to white on white.

Огромное спасибо за русский перевод! (Great thanks for russian translation! It's real pleasure after english;)

And what about top-feeds. Do you plan any type of current history - my usecase often says "It's not new, I've read it 2-3 days ago"
