sluggish development Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Whilst it used to be my first choice of a news reader I eventually had to give up as the development of the add-on seem sluggish and behind times.

There are various been reported but not getting fixed. Even the latest 2.0b3 version could not be installed on FF 35

<minVersion>29.0</minVersion>
<maxVersion>34.*</maxVersion>

Either retire the add-on, as in it current shape is useless, or develop it actively

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.3). 

My RSS Reader of Choice Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Firstly, let me say thank you for providing such a great add-on. Firefox is my go to browser, simply because of the customization and fantastic add-on's like this. Normally I would've given it 5 stars, but as others have stated, the ability to add/remove feeds seems broken. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. Can't wait to edit the review, and provide that 5th star. Take care. Keep up the good work. Thanks again.

Update: I updated to version 2.0, and so far all is back as it should. These are the moments when it feels good to be loyal. Take care.

Zainstalowałem betę 2.0b1. W niej wszystko zaczęło działać jak należy. Po powrocie do wersji 1.7.3 wszystko jest OK.

Long time user..one of my fav extensions. Wondering if there's a way to contain the image sizes in feeds to max out at 100% (so there is no bottom scroll). Some of my feeds seem to have large images, and an option for this would be most welcome/appreciated.

things to fix/improve Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've always liked Brief so my congratulations for the good job. There are just a couple things to improve in my modest opinion. The first is that a more evident difference between read and unread feeds would be good. Now the difference is just a light blue stripe on the top of the feed window, and I think would be better to visualize the "V button", used to mark as read/unread, in different colors according if the feed is read or unread, or color the title of the feed with different colors if they are read or unread (and have the possibility to set those colors).
The second thing to fix is the search function. For example, I was looking for the feeds that contained the text "aud" and I had no results, but I knew there were. Then I tried to look for "eur" and it gave me among the results a feed containing "euraud". So, why it didn't give it as result when I was looking for "aud"?
Another thing that I believe should be fixed is that when clickin on a feed, the browser opens a new window but to read the news I have to move to that window because the window that stays active is that of Brief.
If you will improve this things I think that Brief will become the best feed reader ever. Thank you.

Ich finde, dass der Abruf neuer Feedeinträge viel zu langsam ist und würde mir wünschen, dass diese Geschwindigkeit nachhaltig gesteigert wird.

Да, хорошо, но... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

В обзоре для NewsFox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/newsfox/reviews/636036/ я разобрал кое-какие недостатки Brief. Перескажу - меня не устроили поочерёдность удаления записей, скорость обновления лент и жручесть анимированной оповещалки. Зато порадовали наличие Корзины и опции "игнорировать эту ленту при подсчёте количества непрочитанных записей". Гладенький интерфейс в принципе тоже глазу приятен, но соответственно айтишной компактности информирования от него не ждите. Эдакий айфон в мире фидеров. По итогам приближенности к почто-фидеру Оперы 11 и перечисленных плюсов и минусов ставлю 4 звезды

пользуюсь дополнение уже 3тий год. готов поддержать разработчиков. имхо лучший rss клиент, ключевое преимущество в том что он локальный. аналогов я не нашел.

Моим русскоязычным друзьям: используйте это расширение очень осторожно. При очевидной попытке изменить порядок лент в окне настроек соединение с БД полностью теряется и все ленты выглядят пустыми. Восстановил копированием БД brief.sqlite в папку профиля. Запросы к БД вряд ли оптимизированы - расширение нехило подвешивает браузер. Наблюдается не совсем корректное обновление лент по дате. Это скорее бета, чем законченное расширение, имхо. Будьте осторожны и не теряйте своих данных.
