Feed Notifier is for you if you want a news aggregator that focuses on real-time feed notifications and leaves out all the other stuff that comes with most news readers.

Features:

  • Supports all common RSS and Atom web feed protocols.
  • Clean look and feel, doesn’t get in your way.
  • Configurable polling interval for each feed.
  • Configurable popup duration.
  • Configurable popup size, position and transparency.
  • Configurable popup border size and color.
  • Popups do not steal keyboard or mouse focus from other applications.
  • Popups show item age and author.
  • Navigation controls in popups to view next/previous items.
  • Advanced keyword filtering options.
  • Supports launching from Firefox and other browsers via feed:// protocol.
  • Supports enabling/disabling individual feeds.
  • Deactivates when user is idle to save bandwidth and processing time.

What's New:

  • Fixed caching bug that caused old items to reappear for some feeds.
  • Wait if hovering: Don’t advance to the next pop-up if you’re hovering over it with your mouse.
  • Stay on top: Now you can choose to not have pop-ups stay on top, if you wish.
  • Border size: You can configure the size of the pop-up border.
  • Border color: You can configure the color of the pop-up border – and this can be done on a per-feed basis to help distinguish between items from different feeds!
  • Right-click links to copy the link URL.
  • Allow fallback on Windows-configured proxy.
  • Improved cache mechanism.
  • Proxy info is encoded on disk and displayed like a password in the user interface.
  • Checks for software updates every 24 hours, not just on app startup.
  • 15 second socket timeout (was infinite, which caused problems with bad feeds).
  • Use black text color in pop-ups, regardless of system theme.
  • Use proxy when downloading feed favicons.
  • Removed webkit and html theme code remnants that weren’t being used.
