    Is this a joke??? Mail is impossible to use (opens back in Safary!) and why run another clumsy app just to read my channels. Why do you hate me Apple?!

    I was hoping this update would be the reason to switch to Safari.  But it looks like I'm staying with ROCKMELT, still don't understand why apple does t buy this browser and use the RSS bar it has.  Syncs with iphone and iPad.  Plus has had Facebook integration for over a year.

    I wasn't at all excited about Mountain Lion because of features that could have easily arrived on Lion as an update. And now that I've found out they completely removed RSS from Mail and Safari there is no way I'm upgrading. Opening Mail, reading messages and browsing through RSS feeds is part of my morning routine. I have tons of flagged content for future reference which now has no way of transferring to another app. I also loved easy access to RSS feeds in Safari. That was absolute heaven on web and now it's all gone. Without warning, without knowing where you're headed to.

     

    Who knows what else Apple removed in Mountain Lion. Therefore, I don't see how features like adding a Share button and notifications can sell this featureless operating system. I am so happy I held back from impulsive buying. There is no justification and tolerance for this move dear Apple.

    Bring RSS back to Safari 6

     

     

    Apple has dropped support for reading RSS feeds within the browser. Instead, Apple asks that you use a dedicated RSS reader when you want to peruse the latest links. But what if you don't want to use such a reader? You can still see RSS articles in Safari with a little help from Apple's automation utility, Automator.

     

    Launch Automator (in the /Applications folder) and in the template chooser that appears, select Service and click Choose. Configure the top of the workflow to read Service Receives No Input in Any Application. In the Actions library select Internet and drag the following actions into the workflow area: Get Specified URLs, Get Link URLs from Articles, and Display Webpages.

     

    In the Get Specified URLs area, click Add and add the address of the RSS feed you wish to view in Safari - http://safari--support.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?alt=rss for example. In the Get Link URLs from Articles action, be sure that the Only Return URLs In The Same Domain As The Original Webpage option is enabled. This ensures that you don't wind up with articles pulled from other websites. Save your workflow.

     

    Now, if you click Run in the top-right corner of the workflow, Safari will launch and open multiple tabs, each displaying an article from the feed. In the future, when you want to run the workflow, simply select Services from any application’s application menu and choose your workflow from the submenu.

     

    Add a temporary feed

    This is fine if you always want to view feeds from the same websites. But there may be times when you wish to view another site’s feed just once. Return to your workflow and in the Get Specified URLs action click on Options. In the area that appears, enable the Show This Action When the Workflow Runs option and save the workflow.

     

    When you next invoke the workflow a Get Specified URLs window will appear. Within it, click on the Add button and enter the feed address for the site you wish to pull articles from and then click Continue.

     

    Filter the feeds

    Using this workflow you may encounter sites that have dozens of articles in their feed, offering more tabs that you may wish to click through. You can modify the workflow to filter articles so that you see just the ones you’re likely to be interested in. In this case, create a workflow with actions in this order: Get Specified URLs, Filter Articles, Get Link URLs from Articles, and Display Webpages. The Filter Articles action is new and it works like this.

     

    If you want to change your filtering options each time you invoke the workflow, you already have a clue how to go about it. Return to the workflow and in the Filter Articles action, click on Options, enable Show This Action When the Workflow Runs, and save the workflow. When you next run it you’ll be able to configure the action and enter new filtering options - Content Contains SafariSupport, for instance.

    Yes I know you're trying to help but 1) you didn't cite the source but rather claimed it as your own; and 2) inserted your own links thereby becoming a commercial promotion. To my definition and the dictionary's, that's plagiarism. Thanks

    Here's another hint that might be helpful: The Safari-extension "Subscribe To Feed".

    I downloaded and started using Vienna RSS.

    I find I like it a lot better then the old way of doing RSS reader.

    I agree. The RSS feature in Safari is needed. RSS is part of the web and the implementation in Safari pre-6 was simple enough that it should be retained. It was a mistake to drop this feature.

    I've posted feedback here..http://www.apple.com/feedback/safari.html

    I'd suggest we continue to provide this link in this thread so others can voice their concerns. Apple IS listening.

    No. Apple doesn't read these forums.

     

    Even if Apple brought back RSS, I would stay with Vienna instead.
