TypeRSS feed reader

Liferea is a RSS feed reader based on GTK+/GNOME. It fetches the headlines from sites you give it and it shows them and a description of the articles in a nice and brief display.


[edit] The name

Liferea is short for Linux Feed Reader.

[edit] Feed Support

Liferea can pull down all of the RSS/RDF, CDF, Atom, OCS, and OPML feeds tried so far. I've yet to find a feed where Liferea says "I don't understand that feed, so I'm not going to show it to you".

[edit] Features


[edit] Search

You can search all the feeds it knows about for a given keyword. Liferea then makes a new "feed" for that search-keyword. For example, if you'd like to keep an eye on any headline who contains words like "Linux", or "Iran", then you can make a simple "Search"-feed which consists of all headlines who contain your keyword.

[edit] The settings

You can configure everything you'd expect in a RSS feed reader, like what browser to open the links in, what proxy to use, how often to refresh the headlines, and so on.

You can also choose if you want to view the HTML in feeds using GtkHTML2 or Mozilla.
