While Mozilla Firefox already includes an embedded RSS feed manager, there's still room for improvement. And this improvement comes in the shape of an add-on that allows you to follow the latest headlines of your preferred blogs and websites.

SRR, which stands for Simple RSS Reader, displays the titles of the latest posts published on your favourite RSS feeds on a new toolbar that sits under the navigation one. This toolbar also includes some controls to browse through new posts and jump from one feed to another. Whenever you want to read more about a given headline, simply click on it and the full post will open up in a new tab.

I personally found this RSS reader to be better than Mozilla Live Bookmarks, but on the downside, I missed the ability to add feeds automatically (searching for the appropriate link on a given webpage or importing the OPML file) instead of having to fill in the information manually. Also, as you read headlines on a toolbar, space is quite limited and you have no preview of what's coming next.

Simple RSS Reader completely integrates RSS headlines into Firefox.

When you need to get the news fast, Simple RSS gets you there faster. With only a few clicks you get your favorite news in your toolbar. Simple RSS comes with built in preview, navigation bar and setup panel.

  • View the news of your favorite sites in the Firefox bar
  • Fast and intuitive navigation bar
  • Supports all versions of RSS and Atom
  • Lightweight, fast and easy
