AFAIK, either RSS or Atom can display the whole article and not just a summary, but many feed makers do just the summary to direct more browser traffic to the site.Project said:NetNewsWire.... full version....amazing program.
I just wish more feeds would let me take the whole article and not just a summary, so that I can read up when im offline like on the bus or something... what is this technically? An Atom feed?
i knew i was going to get that. not at the moment. it's kinda rough and buggy depending on the feeds. i will see about releasing it in the future though. i'll announce it here if and when i do.stridey said:Is it available for download?
I took a look at it, but it was so unMaclike that I didn't really give it a decent go. Have you tried Vienna? It seemed ok...Mitthrawnuruodo said:Anyone tried RSSOwl?
I'm getting tired of Safari crashing several times a day (most often assosiated with closing tabs containing CGI scripting) and are looking for an alternative to Safari RSS. That way I could switch back to Firefox and only miss AcidSearch (but that's another thread, really ).
I don't consider NetNewsWire Lite as an alternative, since I even preferred Firefox' (cheap) live bookmarks to that.
You realize that downloading a lot of programs isn't a bad thing on a Mac, right? That's one of the reasons we're all using them!Apple said:Im a download-as-little-apps-as-possible guy so I just stick with Safari. I learned the Windows way on what downloading too many programs can do and if a program that comes with my computer can do it, I'll use it.
I don't think RSS feeds are big with the general mac crowd. More of the tech-savy mac users use them. I did read that Netnewswire is the most used rss reader on any platform based on quite a few popular website feed stats.plasticparadox said:Shocked that nobody's voted for NewsFire yet. But yeah, I voted Safari.
I'm actually surprised that you're the first person to choose a web-based service; I thought there'd be more, especially with Google Reader.SummerBreeze said:Maybe I'm weird, but I prefer Bloglines. Sure, it's web-based and all, but I do come online to check up on the news so it just seems like a natural place to go. Plus, I have the ability to view everything as the complete article.
google reader is horrible. worst thing i've ever seen come out of google. bloglines blows it awaystridey said:I'm actually surprised that you're the first person to choose a web-based service; I thought there'd be more, especially with Google Reader.
