    i think basilisk is referring to the fact that upgrading removes those pre-existing rss links automatically.

    Thanks, but I won't be able to use the back button to go from the article back to the RSS summary, will I? My workflow has up until now been efficient and simple.

     

    Click on RSS Tab in Bookmarks Bar

    Read which RSS feed has an update (number in brackets shows number of unread posts)

    Click on that link to see the summary of all articles from that sites own RSS feed

    Click on an interesting article to read

    After reading article, hit Safari back button to return to the summary for that site, then move on until all that site's interesting feeds have been read

    Move onto next site in RSS list and repeat.

     

    Although Safari 5.1.7 had the possibility to Read All RSS Feeds in one long list, I only used this to 'mark as read' the sometimes 1,000 or more articles left unread when I go on a trip or holiday.

     

    I really don't fancy having to swap between applications all the time, surely there is a system that replicates the old Safari system? That was brilliant!

    I'm solidly furious with Apple about this. I am reviewing alternatives to Safari, including perhaps going to a Firefox/Vienna combination. It seems that in my testing so far of 10.9, there are a lot of sites I'm running across that are not compatible, and not always for obvious reasons. In some ways, Safari 7 feels about as advanced as Safari 3. Bottomline, there is no obvious solutions if you are a heavy RSS user who wants a balance of RSS and web browsing wrapped into a single package. I've sent and continue to send dozens of messages to Apple people I know as well as Apple Safari feedback (http://www.apple.com/feedback/safari.html), and to my surprise and dismay, been totally ignored. At the very least, I really feel Apple more now than ever is alienating the solidy-Apple core user base.

    the only vialble solution for me, is feedly. it is a bit slow but it works in every browser. it has 'read as full article' function in whole feeds for the 'infinite' scrolling experience. as i like.

     

    you can make folders with several rss-feeds in it and bookmark that collection.

    it is not as fast as rss on safari 5, it does not load the rss automaticly in the background and it has no count button per folder in your bookmark-bar. a feedly extension for chrome does have a count-button for all your feeds together. but feeldy or the extension hangs chrome regularly. not the best choice.


    so for now i'm still better off with safari and feedly.

    this is as close i could get to the original, simple, fast and perfect implementation as before safari 6.

    the good old times..

    i hope you managed to lodge another complaint about RSS missing from safari durng that conv i think at this point the louder we can be the better.

    Losing RSS is a big minus for me, but not as bad as some of the butchery done to the iWork apps. I have managed to find a suitable app called NetNewsWire which is OK, but only 90% if what Safari did (even if it in other areas can do more, these aren't things I miss or need). The downer is I think I will have to pay for it at some point. :-(

     

    You buy a $3,000 computer and expect better than this. OS X is beginning to turn into Windows - you can't do anything useful or easily without having to download third party apps.

    Thanks for mentioning NNW i also have the beta and have been meaning to get my feeds transferred over now that the writing is clearly on the wall, as it were. Regarding the windblows comment i would just say this; At least we've got along way to go before it's that bad.

     

    I heard about iwork actually warned a client about a project template i made for him.

  • 519. Re: Where did RSS go in Safari 6???
    Basilisk Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Transferring the feeds was easy. I had kept all my Safari RSS feeds in a Bookmarked folder and when I opened that in new Safari all I could see was the list of names and no addresses to copy. With NNW open in the Add Feeds dialogue, double clicking (or copying, sorry, can't  remember which) on the feed in Safari transferred it to the text box open in NNW and all I had to do was to click the Add box and it was in. It took me five minutes to add 20 feeds and organise them into subject folders - something I didn't know how to do in Safari.

     

    As for the Windows comment, I did only say "beginning to turn" although that probably began with Lion...

    Ditch Safari, that is what I did.  I use Vienna for all of my browsing.  Safari is no longer needed.  I am in the process of getting the rest of our family to switch.  Its only about 10 users, but thats all I can do to protest Apple's desired demise of RSS.

    I'll have to say that I kind of threw in the towel and have been upgrading my Macs -- I couldn't undo Apple's lame brained blunder and although I love RSS it doesn't pay the bills. That said, my experience losing RSS and the terrible way that Apple handled it was a milestone I won't forget as an advocate of openness. I went from a life long Apple advocate (have owned original Apple II, Mac 1, iPhone 1, iPad 1, et al) and champion to a jaded "I guess its still better than Windows/Linux for most people, but I'll buy used late model Macs so Capitalist Cook doesn't get any more of my money". Apple is just another meh Coke/Nike/Ford product company now.

     

    The way Apple killed RSS without warning damaged my professional productivity that had increased thanks to the beautifully simple integration of RSS in Safari. I tried switching to Google Reader, but then Google killed that (notice a theme?) -- so I kind of gave up on RSS after trying some of the kludgy RSS readers that folks on here were recommending. I've gotten better at using Twitter and the various Twitter clients, but it's a poor replacement for the golden days of RSS and Safari.

     

    I hadn't looked at Vienna before since it required running another app outside of the browser, but seeing that it is Open Source gives me hope. At least Apple and Google can't flip a switch and kill it overnight. I'll take another look. Here's a nice post from the Vienna folks: Vienna, in support of openness

    Why not put up an extension section in the App store? I would gladly pay for a good rss plugin or other missing features in iWork and so on..

     

    I think its a big opportunity for developers to jump on frustrating Mac users.

    I just did a search in App Store for RSS Reader and it came up with 42 hits. It appears that has already been done.

    It’s a big difference to have it in your browser compared to have it as standalone. We don’t want to switch between the browser and rss functionaltiy. Me and a lot of other Mac users miss the built in functionality with had with SL. I used it as live bookmarks and it was awesome.

     

    Workflow:

     

    1. Click the bookmark to see what’s new, click the interesting headline.

    2. Click reader.
