    Hello dear friend.
    Thank you for Feednotifier. I use it for a long time.

    To help you improve it here are some suggestions.

    1. It would be convenient to freely move the window of Feednotifier. Now if you need the space under the Feednotifier window, you can only close it. But if you close it, the list of news goes to the last entry. So you have to click back (sometimes hundreds of times).
    I would do it this way. I move the window with a mouse. When I need to bring the window to its original position, I push the respective icon (button) on the Feednotifier’s window, and it returns to where it naturally should be.
    At least you could realize this thing – minimize the window, and when recovering the window back the list of news stays where it was before minimizing.

    2. Consider this thing – heads of news in a running string.
    I was looking for such an application and didn’t find any. Still this way of representation is very comfortable. All TV channels use this way to show news.

    3. A very good thing would be to save a profile and use it on other pc’s where Feednotifier is installed. The profile could store information on feeds themselves and all personal options of user.

    4. When installing new version of Feednotifier, all feeds disappear. Nasty… Requires fixing.

    So far that is all. If something else appears, I will let you know.


    With kind regards,

    Dear Micheal,
    thanks for this great tool!

    Wish to see a Linux version seen that every tools i’m trying to use in replacing your, like rss owl or rss ticker (a firefox extension), is not able to give me the same great experience.

    Seen that is written in Python maybe is easy to make a *nix version and if someone got some hint please share it.

    Now i’m using it trough wine but got some little bug in popup positioning.

    All the best

    Not sure if this fix introduces another bug. I use feed notifier for some recurring titles and it does not display the notification box although the publish date has changed for that particular post. Thanks!
