Feed Notifier 2.5 Released

2011 August 26
by Michael Fogleman

Bug fixes and new features are here in Feed Notifier 2.5! Configurable colors!

New Pop-up Options

  • Wait if hovering: Don’t advance to the next pop-up if you’re hovering over it with your mouse.
  • Stay on top: Now you can choose to not have pop-ups stay on top, if you wish.
  • Border size: You can configure the size of the pop-up border.
  • Border color: You can configure the color of the pop-up border – and this can be done on a per-feed basis to help distinguish between items from different feeds!
  • Right-click links to copy the link URL.

Other Features

  • Allow fallback on Windows-configured proxy.
  • Improved cache mechanism.
  • Proxy info is encoded on disk and displayed like a password in the user interface.
  • Checks for software updates every 24 hours, not just on app startup.

Bug Fixes

  • 15 second socket timeout (was infinite, which caused problems with bad feeds).
  • Use black text color in pop-ups, regardless of system theme.
  • Use proxy when downloading feed favicons.
  • Removed webkit and html theme code remnants that weren’t being used.

    So… No themes?

    PS. I was worried that this program has been abandoned. It would be a great waste since it’s a one of a kind rss reader.

    Hi, thanks for creating FeedNotifier, it’s a great application.
    I’ve got one question: is it going to support windows authentication in future?

    Best regards

    thanks a lot. it’s exactly what i wanted after moving from opera to chrome.
    no chrome extensions has a timeout interval – that’s why you have to manually close them.

    but there’s one thing – it requires more than 35 mb of RAM. it’s WAY too much for such a small app, isn’t it?

    The programs looks great, but please (please, please, please!), OPML support! It’s the one thing I need to start using your program!

    I would like options to:
    1) Choose font type for headlines and content
    2) Choose font size for headlines and content

    Otherwise, this app is perfect for me.

    Hi Hi, great tool you have here! sort of a niche RSS tool ! if you could add in an ‘send RSS to email’ (after applying filters!) that would be fantastics… I could then run this tool in my Server, and get email in my mobile whenever certain keywords are found in the RSS Feeds!

    Surprise everyone is saying good to this software. But a very simple task this software does not have – How to load the existing RSS Feeds from existing browser? It looks like to add one by one but I even tried some are working but most are not working and responding “The URL entered does not appear to be a valid RSS/Atom feed”

    I hope they can improve in soon future and pack this software better.

    It is really good software if and only if they do some improvement
