If you check specific web sites for new content on a regular basis, you can use Live Bookmarks in Firefox, which automatically delivers the most recent updates to you, without having to visit the web site. When a web feed is available from a web site, you can use Firefox to subscribe to it, as a Live Bookmark. Firefox checks your Live Bookmarks every thirty minutes for updates, which enables you to stay current with the latest information from your favorite sites. Live Bookmarks work with any web feed in RSS, RDF, or Atom format.
Feed Sidebar: If you’re not familiar with Firefox Live Bookmarks, than read above, and if, you’re using Live Bookmarks, then this extension will make your feed reading just a tad bit better.
The Feed Sidebar is an extension for the Mozilla Firefox Web browser that displays the new items from your Live Bookmarks in the sidebar. It is intended to be a lightweight extension of the RSS capabilities already included in Firefox, not a completely new feed management system.
Installing the Feed Sidebar will add a new sidebar to Firefox that, when opened, will load the feeds that you have bookmarked in Firefox and display any unread items from those feeds. Clicking on an item will show a preview in the bottom of the sidebar, and double- or middle-clicking will open the item in the browser and remove it from the sidebar. The Feed Sidebar will also notify you of broken or unavailable feeds, something which I wish Firefox did in a more obvious manner.
The Feed Sidebar toolbar contains buttons to open all items in tabs, mark all items as read, change the number of days of items to show, stop the current feed update, force a feed update, and change the update interval.
