I don't think it should be entirely separate because I actually tend to process email and feeds at the same times, so I like the fact that they're integrated, but I also agree that there should be a counter at the feeds icon for those that don't use it like I do.
Being able to reorder feeds (via drag & drop or via the Settings menu) would at least allow for grouping which doesn't happen organically as one adds feeds that are found.
I would also add that being able to add either Separators or group feeds into folders would be the next logical step, but we need to be able to change the order of feeds in the list first.
I have found several by simple Search:
I use Bing Search but your faourite search engine should be able find what you need as some feeds seem to be handled by third party feeders.
So it is about Rss Feed display in the image. Probably settings would let you to choose one, two, or three columns.
But I used Feedbro with three columns in FireFox (that's means no into a panel), and I feel comfortable with such display : it's a quickly way to read a lot of entries. For sure, there are not as shrinked as they are on the image, but panel size is free to enlarge a bit the rss area.
I don't really have a mind about using ctrl or shift difficulties : if this is to select elements, or group of elements, this is like managing files into OS file manager.
But do you select them a lot? With FeedBro I didn't do that for a lot of time. A really good feature for which I was afraid at the beginning I have to say, is that the element is considered as read when you have scrolled until the last elements of the current list. So you don't need to delete manually them. And if you want to keep them, you open them and managed them as normal tab.
Has nothing come out of this? I really don't feel like using Vivaldi if this isn't a feature. I follow a single RSS feed and have been using Thunderbird for its great RSS filtering capabilities. If Vivaldi had this, I would ditch Thunderbird immediately and even cease using other browsers.
Oh yes, something like that is absolutely essential. I'd also add keyboard shorcut for that. Also, at the same time it would be nice to be possible to open multiple links. Like, e.g. I know that I'll be interested in all links from a given feed so I select them all and click the shortcut, so all of the links open in the background.
There is scarcity of working podcast players on windows.
Feeds in the sidebar seem to be separate from mail app now (maybe only visually and not technically, I don't know). Maybe in the same manner we could have podcasts separated from feeds. And it could have all conveniences of decent podplayers:
search in major podcast libraries
visual selection of podcasts and episodes (by podcast logo / episode image)
continuity of playback in long episodes
sync of subscriptions and playback positions across devices (afaik no software can do it on windows)
@zakius I agree, I think synchronisation should start as just syncing the sites themselves and then perhaps a fancier sync feature later. It would be annoying having different states for different clients, but it's better than the current state of having to re-remember all the sites I had in my feed... by a long shot.
RSS is a potential privacy bug bear for some (I would hope all) people, considering that it's effectively getting a look into how someone gets informed about their world view, potentially.
Definitely, this would be a great feature. I do use a lot Vivaldi RSS Reader, but I still also use “Lucknews” a free RSS reader for Mac which offer this particular feature.
Here is how it work in Lucknews: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyZhwD_aAxk
Another great thing related is than Lucknews keep a offline version of this page and then, even without network, I can still read the full article (Which is part of the goal of a RSS Reader software).
It would be amazing to have this feature in the Vivaldi RSS Client 👍.
Some publishers/writers decide to give you only the abstract in feeds for the sole purpose of making you visit the site. They need the visits and they need you to look at ads to earn cash and make the site/blog more popular. You gotta decide, do you want to support the site to ensure content will be published in future too, or don’t you care too much for it anyway?
Actually, the way I shared to implement the feature is fully equivalent to a visit on the website. The ads will be loaded and everything, and the website will continue to make money and count the reader as a regular visitor.
