    Yup... I mark this point - a little more than 6 months from the passing of Steve Jobs - as when the slide from grace began.

    Can't confirm.

  • nybe Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    This is certainly not one of those issues that has gotten resolved. For my own part, I have tried emailing people I know at Apple, submitting feedback (several dozen times by now), and submitting developer support tickets. I have yet to receive feedback from Apple, so I'm assuming the feedback is one-way. Incidentally, the developer ticket was summarily closed sans discussion.

     

    I am running Lion, but have not run the security updates that will break RSS in Safari 5. I am still hopefully this gets some attention from Apple, but it will require all of us to continue to regularly submit feedback through the  safari feedback link:

    I'm pointing my browser (Safari 5.1.7) there now.

    yeah i just added more myself it looks like im going to be forced to upgrde prety soon here the holes in safari 5 are starting to get bigger. You'd think we could get some kind of official apple response considering this thread has more views and replies then even the itunes podcasts thread from the 11.1 fiasco.

    Stunningly, this issue has not yet been resolved for Safari 7 in Mavericks. This is unfortunate because it means that my primary machine will still be running Safari 5 and Lion until this gets resolved. A built-in RSS reader that was simple to use is the primary, and sometimes, sole reason for using Safari. I actually wouldn't mind using Safari 5 with Mavericks, but I assume that's a no-can-do sort of proposition. I wonder if anyone could build an extension that would effectively act as a built-in RSS reader, and even better if it also updated the "unread" count in the menus as with Safari 5.

    I've been stuck with Safari 5 on Snow because professional sw as FCP or plug ins, didn't know that Safari 6 was missing Rss reader. Downloaded Mavericks and very, very, very disappointed of the missing feeds reader. Red the main post of this thread from last year and perfectly agree with the complaining of the ones that enough smart to make RSS their reason of life over the information age...

    The ones that don't use feeds to filter articles are just ignorant , in a nice way, as they don't know how fast is to follow many point of views and many subject within a couple of minutes. As a blogger I've seen the result of feed missing because many of my viewers were obviously checking feeds instead of site.

     

    Too bad for Apple to move away from them, if speed is an issue, surely they are cutting on efficiency that is not only about speed but on results that are much more important. Just silly nerds or gamers cares for pure speed... In fact I don't like to surf on IOS Safari because of that.

     

    Finally I agree to ask for an extension to habilitate them again, but also to Apple to put a switch in the pref to put it back on Safari as an optional choice.

    I'm also a 10.7 + Safari 5 holdout. I've been using RSS since the beginning. I shudder to think what life is like without it.

     

    Could people who have bitten the bullet and moved to 10.8 or 10.9 post their experiences about how they are getting by? How do you keep track of updates to frequently visited websites? What is your workflow?

    Using a real RSS client with cool features?

  • ubernaut Level 1 Level 1 (65 points)

    it does seem as if apple wont be changing their minds on this one anytime soon especially since they are pushing safari push notifications now. Not sure why it has to be a choice wish we could have the best of both worlds.

  • piero Level 1 Level 1 (125 points)

    I tell you may bad experience then!

     

    I was playing with Mavericks last Friday and start trying and dl some rss readers.

    First was nice. but after adding one link to a site, told me: " pay yo have more..." Great!

    Then another one that looked worst than the ones of the 90s...

    In the meantime I was dling the updates for iLife to see the changes and try iMovie, but they were gigas to dl.

    So I left the App Store open and changed room while downloading, after an hour came back and iPhoto was ok but iMovie not and dl very very slow, so stopped and resumed, the Store asked me again the pwd, ok typed in.

    So I decided to try and another reader while controlling the iMovie dl, but was to complicated to transfer the very well organized folder I have on my Safari 5.1 bookm bar. Left again the Mac to do a couple of calls and back, I decide to try the menu bar one so the Store asked for the pwd again, typed in.

    Checked this one looked better but not as good as the one that was asking me to pay for more, so left the checking as the free ones were mainly those ones.

     

    Yesterday I received an mail from App Store charging me for one of the reader that is not even the better one available.

    I might have typed the pwd thinking that it was asking me again after a idle time, I don't know, certainly I'll never use Safari 7 made for quick heads but with less brain...

     

    As somebody said in this thread why upgrading if it get worst? I'll leave it for the poor nerds out there...

    Come on please CT... are you paid by Google devils?

    Why Mac101 through Google search link? Are you paid per click?

     

    And because you're obviously a nerd here is something right for you from your clear answer!

     

    Have fun searching!

    All I want to do is to click on my self-made RSS Tab in the Bookmarks bar in which I stored my 27 RSS feed sites and when I click on one of the links, actually see the page of summary articles displayed in my Browser window. But I can't because Apple removed the functionality to read a feed as a webpage.

     

    How do I get this back?

    If you download any RSS reader, then when you click on an RSS feed link in Safari, it should open the feed in your RSS reader.
