The best RSS extension for FF, small lightweight and does exactly what I want.

Would download again!

Each, of course, to their own - www.netvibes.com and FeedDemon manage 3k+ feeds for me a lot better than this; however that is a 'numbers' comment as well as a personal preference - for small numbers of feeds this is good but not perfect, as covered in other replies.

Useful add-on with an intuitive interface. Will be using it from now on.

The Add-On does what it says on the box, but once you're following more then a few RSS feeds it slows Firefox down to a crawl when it's updating feed, especially when you first start up. I only have 82 feed that I'm following and found it unworkable. It also lacks some of the fine grain control I would like to see in a feed reader.

Great RSS reader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

My favorite RSS reader. Really, I don't need any other, it is easy to use and reliably working as supposed to be.

I tried many and many RSS readers... Some with bad functionalities, some with poor ones...
As soon as i got Brief, i've known it was THE RSS READER i needed.

Clear GUI, very functional, easy to use....
Perfect on a word ;)

Love it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the best feed reader for Firefox, in my opinion. It works simply, just as advertised. Oh, and to Fur Q: You can have Maxthon. No way I'd use a browser that uses Internet Explorer's rendering engine.

简单明了 非常实用;只是根据阅读习惯,在每篇阅读末尾处加上‘标记为已阅读’就更方便了;谢谢;

Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Never was RSS-Reading so intuitive than with Brief. Since I am a big Fan of Atoms and RSS, I have very plenty of them. Brief lets never loose the overview again.
Great work!

This is a very clean and visually attractive Feed reader.

The only thing that bugged me is the way I end up with "Brief" all through my recent tabs list, and due to the amount of times i open brief in a day, it makes my recent tabs list useless. :(

So for now Im using Feed Sidebar

This replaces my Thunderbird RSS reader. I like the way it keeps the sidebar in the tabbed window so it doesn't clutter the rest of the windows.

I figured out how to import my Thunderbird feeds, but I haven't figured out how to add a new feed yet. I also haven't figured out how to group similar feeds into folders. I'm sure I get those things figured out, but it would be nice to have a short instruction file.

Excellent with Potential for Much More Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a useful and well designed addon that is very user friendly and even with the lack of "documentation" is easy enough to use that anyone should be able to figure it out. Its a high quality work produced to address a basic need and does it admirably. I would however suggest that documentation be made for the noobs and also adding the front-end utility to surrogate the hardcoding of the styles for the non-technical users and the ability to store and execute credentials for sites that require user access to activate links within the posts. Although these recommendations would be nice to have, the addon is excellent and very efficiently functional as is. Keep up the good work.

For anyone with a older machine (slow) and uses tons of tabs, Brief is certainly welcome addition. Anything that opens as sidebar for me tends to be a sluggish but Brief is light fast always.

As for no documentation. It seems that this addon is as "simple" as it gets. Add feeds to the "Live Bookmars" folder, or wherever you store your feeds at in the bookmars. Go to the options in Brief window, Feeds tab, then select the feeds folder.

Have to agree with the previous reviewer about the lack of documentation. I have no clue on how to use this addon. My Live bookmarks doesn't show in Brief. The addon looks good in the screenshots, but I have no idea how to get my RSS feeds show that way. I guess I am just missing something basic here, but until I get some kind of tutorial I am unable to use it.
