More on IE7 RSS

3 Oct

Following on from Yesterdays post reading RSS feeds in IE7 there should be a way to mark feeds left unread in a folder as read. I tend to like to set all my feeds as read if i’m going to ignore certain feeds.

Sometimes I just don’t want to read some feeds and it would be good to have the option.

I did try Microsoft Max to see how that fared. It looks nice and arranges the feeds and feed items in a nice way, but for some reason it doesn’t give you the option to view the whole feed item in the same window. if you click on a feed item it opens up the website in your browser. What’s he point in that? It would be much better if it opened the item within the program.

The look of Max is awesome and hopefully developers of Windows apps in the future can get their apps to look as good as it.

If anyone knows how I can get to view items within the Max window I would be grateful.


Internet Explorer 7 RSS Reading

2 Oct

I’ve started using IE7 for reading my RSS feeds.

One thing that bothers me is that i can’t get a list of unread feeds together like in FeedDemon. If you have a long list of feeds it’s nice to click on the folder they are in and see which ones still have unread items. Also the way of getting to your feeds is not ideal, I think it would be a lot better to have a seperate section that is specifically for feeds.

I know IE7 is still in Beta so i can only hope that they make some improvements to the RSS side of it.
