    There is a big orange button at the top left corner called Subscribe. Just copy your RSS links into that.

    I've heard that Safari was gonna eliminate the RSS and also the activity widow. I use the RSS for the Apple blogs, baseball feeds and comic strip just to name a few. I did try one or two of the other RSS apps and they indeed were inferior to the Safari one. Due to that, I am unsure if I will upgrade to Mountain Lion anytime soon. Activity Window I used, to download for example the McLaughlin Group to watch at a later time. It ***** that Apple has taken away my main uses for Safari.

    I too am really disappointed.  The downfall of RSS is just competing services spreading FUD.  I don't want constant updates, I want to see a summary in a particular category when I have time to read.  I DON'T want notifications or twitter feeds, they interrupt my workflow.  I want RSS because it works the way I work.

     

    Oh, and I don't want Google to know what feeds I am reading.  So no, I am not going to use a google RSS reader.

    This is a standard Apple strategy. RSS is old, stable, and boring. Apple is switching to notifications. There is a new Notifications preference pane so that web sites can send notifications directly to Safari. RSS is clunky. It takes one or two hours between updates and it uses an inefficent polling process. It is much more efficient for web sites to be able to push notifications directly to Safari. Transitions are a bit painful but things will be much better in the future.

    It gets worse...

     

    I just installed Mountain Lion, only to find on rebooting that mail just deleted all my old RSS feeds (50+), with no record of what they were etc.

     

    So now, I have to go trawling around trying to remember all the blogs etc I was subscribed too.

     

    Poor form Apple..

    You didn't have everything backed up before installing a new version of an OS?

    That Apple deleted RSS and the activity window in Safari 6, killed safari for me after 10 years of use!

     

    Stupidest thing to do is remove features!

    Dear Inspiratron,

     

         RSS is also missing from Mountain Lion's Mail, so now that I have updated I cannot even use RSS there.  RSS keeps me up to date with the latest news.  Using Safari, I could always know how many articles for each feed I still had not read.  I could also click on articles within the same program and be taken to the full version.  It was very handy.  I hope Apple realizes how useful it was for many of us and puts it back in a future update.

    Dear Scyanide,

     

         Even if Richard does have a backup, the Mail program in Mountain Lion does not do RSS.  It's too bad, I really use this service a lot.

    He could have had all the links, for the very least. Once he found a respectable replacement RSS Reader then he could have imported everything into the new tool. There are plenty of other ones out there just a matter of time of finding the right one for your needs. There are quite a few in the Mac App Store already and I'm sure many online solutions.

     

    For whatever reason, Apple felt it was necessary to let go of RSS. I don't understand it myself but it is a sign to either move on to alternative forms of news/information aggregation or look to 3rd party RSS solutions for now. I long ago moved away from Mail.app as my RSS reader and migrated everything over to Google Reader which from there I use an application called Reeder (in iOS and Mac App Stores) to read my Google Reader feeds. I found it convenient cause I can read the feeds on my phone or on the desktop and it is all synced together.

    Apple feuds with Google, yet forces us to use Google reader service? *** APPLE! Bring back RSS reader!

    No one is saying you have to use Google Reader. There are plenty of other options out there.

    Nice one! I am going to go back to the old Safari thanks to that, RSS support in Safari was convenient and descreet, and helped to notify you of news updates, not you have to run another programme to do something simple like read the news. - daft

     

    I agree, the Safari developers should bring this back, and I hope they do
