Feedbro


Fast feed reader as a Google Chrome browser extension for reading blogs, news or any RSS, Atom or RDF based feed.

Visit Chrome Web Store to Install

Tree-based feed navigation with folders and drag & drop support

You can create folders (e.g. based on category) and use them to group similar feeds. Feeds and folders can be arranged with a mouse by using drag & drop. This makes it easy to read e.g. all new feed items in folder "Leadership" (just click the folder).

Advanced Rule Engine

You can create Rules that are triggered either when a new article arrives (is loaded from the source) or when an article is viewed. Rules can use article title, author and content as an input for rule conditions.

Rule conditions support scanning based on words, text fragment, regular expression and "all", "any", "none" type grouping logic.

Rules can trigger actions such as desktop notification (using Chrome notification system), sound effect, highlighting of the article border, hiding or deleting the article, adding a tag, marking the article as a favorite or highlighting certain words or parts of the content text.

Feed autodiscovery

It is very easy to add new feed subscriptions to Feedbro. Just open the blog or website with your browser, click the Feedbro icon and select "Find Feeds in Current Tab". Feedbro will automatically find all the RSS, Atom and RDF feeds linked to the page and let's you subscribe to selected feeds with two clicks.

Tagging system with autocomplete and search

You can quickly add custom tags to articles. When typing the tag, Feedbro uses autocomplete based on existing tag names to help you complete the tag quicker. Tags main menu shows all given tags and many many articles are associated to those tags. You can search for articles with a specific tag by simply clicking the tag name in Tags view or the article view when hovering on top of the tag list with a mouse.

Multiple browsing and viewing modes

View all, view all in a folder, view all in a feed, view all with a tag. View complete articles or just headlines. Optionally view only unread articles. Sort articles either newest first or oldest first. View only articles that are newer than specified date.

Also supports Opera RSS reader style three column view - feed list - article title list - article body!

UI Themes

Feedbro supports Light, Dark and Aqua UI themes.

MathJax support

Feedbro has built-in support for LaTeX and TeX that are used to display mathematical formulas and symbols. Enable in Options.

Desktop notifications

Keyboard shortcuts

Powerful keyboard shortcuts (very similar to Google Reader) make browsing even faster.

Feed specific settings

Simple interface for removing inactive feeds

Feed statistics main menu in Feedbro shows a list of all subscribed feeds and some key meta data about them such as when was the latest article posted to the feed or if there were any errors when accessing the feed last time (loading timeout, invalid XML etc). Feedbro can automatically select feeds that have posts older than X days so you can remove these 'dead' feeds quickly by pressing just one button.
