X-notifier to become RSS reader (notifier)?

Hello Tobwithu,

this just came to my mind, and just wondering did you maybe think about this - do you have aspirations to create xnotifier capable to read and notify rss contents? :D

After googles announcement that they will shut down google reader on 1st July 2013, I have been searching for a good replacement, and found out that I would need another chrome extension, another rss reader etc, for following my rss feeds, and just came to my mind that it would be really great if X-notifier would become capable to notify and maybe to read rss's. :D

What do you think about this idea? We would have than, in one place all our notifications.

I've started using this simple rss reader ( https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/slick-rss/ealjoljnibpdkocmldli... ), which I found out that it's the simplest way for my chrome to get the notifications, and the possibility to read rss feeds, and if that we could have in X-notifier, I believe it would be wonderful.

Just the thoughts from me. ;)

Have a great day and stay well you and all the participants here. 

p.s. Also, after 1st July this year, google reader scripts will become inactive.

Someone else requested this on twitter.
I'm thinking about how to implement it.

Thanks Tobwithu, wonderful. I didn't know that.

Collective consciousness is definitely ready to help you to create this. :D

I've tested now xnotifier 3.2a and when I click on the RSS in the icon ,to see what will I get, I got the page Add to Google:


I have 28 unreaded texts here ( checked in another rss reader ), and xnotifier don't notify me in the icon in the status bar. It still says No new messages.

It seems that you set to always use Google for feeds.
Open Firefox Options -> Applications -> Web Feed
    Set to 'Preview in Firefox' or 'Use X-notifier'

Thanks, now works great. It was really like you've said that I have had set to always use Google for feeds. ;)
