Opera just added a RSS Reader



  • https://www.opera.com/blogs/desktop/2016/08/opera-40-beta-rss-feeds/ Time to step up those engines, Vivaldi. BTW, I'd like to a small request: [b]please don't call it "RSS Reader"[/b], since RSS is a weaker version of the current, more usable Atom method. Reddit switched to full Atom this year, here's an explanation: https://www.reddit.com/r/changelog/comments/428vdq/upcoming_reddit_change_switching_from_rss_20_to/ This is why the reader should be called something like "[b]Feed Reader[/b]", which emcompasses both Atom and RSS, and whatever other technology will come. BTW, this is hilarious: [img]http://i.imgur.com/Tx84tMy.png[/img]



  • Whilst Vivaldi has some nice features, the actions of Opera of late must force Vivaldi to step-up its game even further otherwise to some it will feel stagnant as I've spoken about in a previous message. Right now the browser world is waiting for the next Opera move not Vivaldi where as a few months back it was the other way around.



  • Oh they actually did it? Nice, lesse how good it is.

    Man, I was hoping Vivaldi would incorporate one too by this moment.



  • Opera doesn't even have the full version of the rss reader in the stable version yet. And I don't really like their implementation. The free VPN feature they just introduced is far more interesting imo.



  • No, Opera calls it a RSS reader. But it does not detect Feeds on webpages and you cant add a feed easyly.
    It is like entering a complete URL in adress bar to fetch something.

    BSHarou's extensions are fine.
    If you need a Feed Reader:
    1. download BS Harous extensions "RSS Detector" for detection and feed reader "Smart RSS" with right click "Save link as…" from https://addons.opera.com/de/search/?query=Smart+RSS
    2. Remame the files from .nex to .crx
    3. Open Extension manager with Ctrl+Shift+E
    4. Drag the files onto manager to install them



  • Yeah, I used that one back with Opera too and immediately after I switched to Vivaldi. The problem is it isn't fully compatible with the browser. You can't drag feeds into folders for example. And it doesn't seem like this will ever be fixed, no updates to the extension in years.



  • Better than nothing.

    No, not really.

    First, you cannot just show the Unread entries, it is impossible.
    Second, author no longer works on it since 2015.
    Third, the more entries you add and more DB grows, the slower it gets (and by a huge margin). I used to have 15-20 feeds added in Opera 12 Reader that were slowly filled with HUNDREDS of entries over a year and it still was lightning fast. BS-Harou's extension gets very slow just with a few feeds when only a moderate entries stored. It also can crash browser often.



  • I never keep old entries longer that 1 month for my 20 feeds. OK, so i cant recognize slow working of the feed reader.

    Sorry, that i suggested these extensions. My fault.

    Yes, BSHarou's extension is slow. And it has not been updated.
    Please search an other extension at Chrome Webstore which pleases you. Or you should use Opera if that works better.

    Adding a Feedreader and getting it as fast as Opera 12 needs some work. Currently there is no Feedreader in the mail (testing!) client. Feeds have currently less prio than the implementation of the mail client.
