Useful for the sidebar, but not so useful for seeing when you actually have new notifications. The counter is stuck at "1" at all times.
Frequently breaks some websites, and even broke my own website as I was trying to work on it. The popup for email fields is annoying and just gets in the way. Though, the biggest problem I have with it is the fact that you are required to register an account in order to change any settings, which is absurd.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.1072.1-signed).
I had tried nearly every feed reader addon for firefox, and had settled on using the Digest addon. It had it's flaws and was slow, but was reliable.
A friend suggested NewsFox, however, and it completely blows everything else out of the water. The only flaw I've seen so far is improper handling of sub-folders when importing an OPML, but that's it. No other flaws from what I can see so far.
I'd have to say this is the best browser-based feed reader I've ever tried, after a few years of using desktop ones. I only have a few one minor issue with it, that links are opened in another tab without automatically switching me over to the new tab. Aside from that, it does pretty much everything that I would expect out of a desktop feed reader.
EDIT: To clarify, I should say that this is the *only* browser-based feed reader that I've liked so far.
I chose to install this addon so that I would get alerted of severe weather in the future, and as I write this there is a severe thunderstorm with golfball-sized hail, 80mph wind gusts, and tornado-forming potential.
What does this addon say for my area's forecast? Sunny and 82 degrees.
I think not!
