Last night, I decided to switch all of my RSS feed bookmarks over to Live Bookmarks. I was then dismayed to find that clicking the "Check Feeds" button in Sage did not update my Live Bookmarks.
So dismayed that I began to look for another RSS reader. I had a few simple requirements:
- open source
- works on Windows XP
- uses the Gecko rendering engine, instead of Trident
I was unable to find one that fit all three requirements. I did find both open source RSS readers that run on Windows XP
, and open source RSS readers that use Gecko
. If you know of an application that has my rigorous feature set, feel free to let me know in a comment.
Realizing that I was going to have to stick with Sage, I wondered if anyone had filed a bug documenting the problem. I found Bug #8058 was an extremely accurate description of the problem. Its reporter:
After I found that ajbanck's attachment
worked to fix the problem (why weren't his fixes included in Sage 1.3.1
?), I thought about blogging about it. Thinking I might have mentioned Sage or the problem in passing before, I decided to do a search.
When I found "Live Bookmarks in Sage 1.3," I almost gave up.
