    Not only is Mail an illogical place to move RSS feeds, the feeds in Mail seem to bring Mail to a grinding halt.  I use hundreds of feeds in Safari and I can sucessfully use about five in Mail.  Try using the Internet Archives' feature film RSS feed in Mail and wait 20 minutes to get your mail. Come on Apple, if RSS feeds are a dying technology, why are they still  in Mail?  If the reader is a useful feature, why is it gone from it's logical home in Safari?  RSS readers outside of a web browser are just a nuisance, and using the RSS reader with Search is a really handy way to collect clippings of a favorite subject from multiple sites.   Everyone posting here that thinks Apple has made a big mistake in removing RSS feeds, complain at http://www.apple.com/feedback/safari.html

     

    they aren't STILL in Mail. They're gone. And so are all my RSS feeds. Poof! you must not have upgraded.

    Confirmed working solution on 10.7.4!

    Getting RSS back - uninstall Safari 6 - install Safari 5.1.7

     

    The solution is here :

    If your downgraded Safari does not work, install Safari 5.1.7 again using the Safari5.1.7LionManual.dmg

     

    Thank you very much for linking to this very simple step-by-step.

    Thanks for this!!

     

    Been running Safari 6 for a week now and it really is not that much faster. I'm sure someone will post benchmarks in response to this proving just how much faster 6 is, but I will only conclude to them that: the use of Saf6 is not ragingly fast enough to warrant living with what I feel are massive and uncomfortable changes to what Safari was. The wide tabs are wonky, I keep habitually clicking them to open new tabs, as I used to, but it doesn't work that way anymore.

     

    I am still baffled by this update. I have always just accepted whatever updates Apple provides, and have never considered going backwards on any of them because they generally are improvements... sometimes amazing improvements. This update sent my workflow and my general user experience noticeably and frustratingly backwards and the "work arounds" (running 3rd party apps) were just not acceptable when what I'm RSSing are always webpages.

     

    My thanks to: bigheadrsa

    You have the wrong idea about what Twitter is. Twitter is just a form of communication. You apparently like to post on forums from your Mac.

    I am so disappointed that safari no longer supports RSS feeds. I want to downgrade so badly. It was great being in Mail so I didn't have to open yet another account with another google thing. I'm sick of google knowing everything I do. I want my RSS feeds back. I want to subscribe in MAIL.

     

    And to those who say RSS feeds are dead - over half of my websites traffic comes from RSS feeds. They are easy and convenient. I do not want a "app reader" - I wouldn't even know what one was best. I've never even looked at one because the RSS feature in Safari was so perfect.

     

    I too complained to the safari developers. argggghhhhh! I wish I could pull someone's hair over this. I'd feel better.

     

    It's not a positive thing that half your traffic comes from RSS feeds.

    A form of communications managed, monitored, and analyzed by a third party with unknown intent, for unknown reasons, and shared with unknown people and businesses.

     

    You are either unaware or uncaring (and that is your right), but that does not make twitter a solution that builds a good future for those of us that do care about privacy.

    I CAN'T EVEN VIEW AN RSS IN SAFARI!!!!

     

    As the web editor for our company - this frustrates me more than anything!  I just want to view the feed and I can't.

     

    VERY DISAPPOINTED.  Looks like Steve Jobs did do all the thinking for Apple.  If this trend continues apple will very quickly lose it's base.

     

    You don't force people to change - you graduate them through it.  Come on Apple, you know better than this.

     

    -- I did fill out the "suggestion" form as well.

    I did some digging in the app store and found an app called shrook. It's free and when you click on an RSS feed in Safari it will ask if you want to add the feed to it. There's NOTHING that just allows you to view the feed without adding it though which was really useful when developing.

     

    I miss Steve too.

    Zoe2020 - I don't want another app.  I just want to view it in Safari.

    There was something that allowed to view the feed without adding it through - it was Safari 5.7.

    Yeah. I didn't want another app either. But I did what I had to. Viewing feeds in Safari was one of the things that made safari superior to other browsers.

    It's a very positive thing that so many people have subscribed to my RSS feed.

    Neil, what makes you so trustful of the people who make your web browser, the people who make your OS, the people who run the fiber backhaul, the people who put your computer together in a factory in commie/fascist China? All of those 3rd parties and you choose Twitter as the bad guy? Interesting. I would like to know more about how you came to this conclusion.

    Since version 3, Firefox is not a replacement for anything!

     

    But Google Chrome is! (and it uses webkit)
