    Firefox RSS reader that automatically checks

    Hi

    I've installed the Sage RSS Reader for Firefox and it does quite a nice job. What I would like though is something that regularly checks for new articles and shows a popup or alert within Firefox when something becomes available. Does anyone know of anything? I'm struggling to find a successful search.

    Cheers,
    Si

    I tried looking for something similar to what you're asking but I couldn't find anything. I assume that this is also the reason why nobody has replied yet. You might be interested in trying out Opera, it has an RSS reader built-in which does what you ask.

    Cheers Megaman - I've got Opera installed for testing purposes but haven't really got around to using it that much. I think the adverts put me off making it my default browser.

    I wonder if anyone is feeling adventurous enough to build an extension that does what we're looking for? Surely some keen Firefox developer could find the time!

    I just checked the mozdez.org wiki for Sage, and it has been requested for a future feature request already. Hopefully we'll see it realeased relatively soon! I would also like to see a feature like that! If you would like to see for yourself, head over to:

    http://wiki.mozdev.org:8080/cgi-bin/...eatureRequests

    it has a list of all feature request for Sage!
