I would give Sage a 10 rating with a slight refresh to make it compatible with Firefox 3. I've tried other RSS readers and really prefer Sage. A couple of the other reviewers ripped this reader pretty badly, but hey, the programs and readers that they use have been used by me and found lacking. Believe me, I've tried almost all of them looking for a replacement for Sage.
A couple of months ago, I emailed three of the developers asking if they had plans to keep this project going. Not one of them emailed me back. So it seems that this fine piece of software is going to die on the vine. What a shame.
Sage makes it more comfortable to read the feeds from its page than actually going to the original websites.. It's fast, easy to use and as far as I know from a year of experience with it, it's also free of any apparent bugs. Probably the best rss reader there is.
Using Sage, in combination with "All-In-One-Sidebar" is an extremely useful way to keep up-to-date with RSS feeds. The combination is very powerful and yet is frugal in its use of desktop real estate.
It would be nice to have an auto-update feature, but the update is just one click away.
A significant advantage of Sage is its lack of verbosity as compared with the big guys like Google Reader.
Using Sage and AIOS, any of my RSS feeds are readily viewable in Firefox Tabs, and I can be very selective about what I want to read at any given time. I don't have to scroll down through irrelevant and long entries.
This is a great useful extension, but i would suggest introducing a new feature to it, and that is automatic refresh of the feeds.
I want to be able to get the feeds as soon as they are posted...and having the feeds automatically refresh at a chosen period would be great.
Does what it does well, not bloated with "features." Fits nicely in the browser sidebar and doesn't get in your way. Some of the available style sheets don't handle html tags well but you can make your own or use the default. Nice job.
Fits with all-in-one sidebar very well.
With so many RSS feeds out on the Web today, RSS is a really important technology in force. Unfortunately, Sage has not been able to keep up with the revolution - Web RSS readers such as Google Reader have surpassed it in features, ease of use, interface design, and convenience. For example, any RSS feeds viewed using Sage are left on that computer and viewable there only, unlike web-based readers, which allow you to view feeds anywhere. Furthermore, Sage has hardly been updated in the last two years.
Bardzo ciekawy dodatek do firefoxa wlasnie go testuje i bardzo dobrze sie sprawuje polecam wszystkim ktorzy lubia tego typu dodatki. Pozdrawiam
I Love this reader, Very simple, fast, light, just the things needed and nothing more.
Today, more than a year after the fact, I'm amazed to remember that Sage won "Most Innovative" in the Extend Firefox competition. Since the Extend Firefox competition, Sage hasn't, not by any stretch of the imagination, been innovate in the slightest. While other Firefox extensions have continued to grow, Sage has rusted away to become a sadly neglected shadow of the proud extension it once was. Even the Sage Nightly Builds have been neglected. Yes, it's still possible to get Sage "Nightly Build" code from a CVS, with the latest changes being six month old! Even more amazing is the fact that this site still chooses to showcase Sage as a recommended add-on. I find it quite incongruous that a dynamic and truly innovative product like Firefox, would choose to recommend an extension that is obviously no longer dynamic or innovative. Perhaps Mozilla would do well to recommend extensions that better exemplify the values and vision of Firefox?
