    Bring it back Apple.


    This decision has bothered me more than any other Apple has made recently, it's really got under my skin. I think it is because I have trusted Apple beyond other companies to make elegant, beautiful objects and interfaces that just work, get out of the way and let me do what i need to do. This decision has left my world an uglier place, I spend more time in my browser than I do in my own living room and it feels like someone has broken in and swapped my sofa for a couple of pallets. Ok that sounds strong but the previous version was an elegant solution, it minimally informed me of unread feeds, without any hassle, the interface kept out of the way, became invisible, now I have 2 apps back and forth, its ugly. And this is what really worries me, that they would make an ugly decision, it goes against everything they stand for and erodes my trust in Apple to strive to be something better, to make something better.


    As a 28 year user of using Apple gear, please apple bring RSS back to safari.


    Simplicity, Beauty, Elegance of form and function are what put Apple at the top, if they loose this idea then we have entered the decline, I hope this is not the case.

    Dropping RSS support from Safari with no warning, no transition path, further antagonizes Apple's long-time-loyal customer base. They are forcing us to consider other vendors, other browsers. Is that a smart strategic move?

  • MartinMM Level 1 (5 points)

    I was baffled when I discovered my feeds were missing. Why get rid of this useful feature? Seems like a bad decision to me. I've sent my feedback to Apple.


  • Allan Eckert Level 9 (50,761 points)

    Have you tried using Vienna RSS instead, I found it really works great. If Apple brings back RSS, I think I'll stick with Vienna. It is that much better.



  • RaceManRocks Level 1 (0 points)

    Thank you to all the lovely people who are kindly suggesting, try this app or that alternative, but the answer is NO thank you.


    RSS feeds are discovered in the browser and should be able to be read in the browser without round tripping to some other app that needlessly takes up time and ram.


    Apple should have NEVER included RSS support in Safari if they intended on pulling it.


    They simply need to return RSS functionality to Safari.


    Those who like using a third party news reader continue using it. That is not an acceptable solution for the rest of us who want the feature returned immediately.

    Removing the RSS Reader in Safari with no heads up prior, I think its obvious Apple did that because they knew this information would light up forums/blogs everywhere and cause a lot of bad press. I hope it still does! We all need to light up apple feedback and any other forum or blog who will let us vent.


    Another obvious thing is the link to the app store in the message you get that safari can't open an RSS feed. Nickle and diming us to pick an app. Sure there may be a free reader but as we all know, usually you get what you pay for. So what, now I have to leave the browser and open up another tool to do what I used to do in one? And the logic of that is? I know the $$$ logic. The developer logic. But this current logic escapes ALL Safari users,....most likely, at least in my case, former Safari user. Not touching it until RSS comes back. Not holding my breath tho.


    I'll tell you what, just this alone stopped me in my tracks from updating my other machines and I got on the horn right away and told my friends not to update to Mountain Lion. Makes me happy that I still have a fully functioning PPC, a loaded/maxxed mac pro that I will now be using a lot more, especially for web browsing. But lets face it, we are all hogged tied when it comes to using most of our mac products. We'll have to upgrade hardware or software at some point and then the proverbial pootch will be screwed, and Apple knows it.


    BAD move Apple. Very bad move.

    Re Etresoft: "I just released an RSS feed reader that is integrated with Mountain Lion's new notifications. Instead of checking some RSS reader all day, just sit back and wait for notifications. You can download it from:"


    While I appreciate your creative effort, receiving a notification every time a feed is updated is too much. I have over 125 feeds in 2 folders on my Bookmarks Bar. Simply looking at the number next to each feed tells me readily if the feed is updated. On my timing I check out the feed rather than a notification's timing.


    Very disappointed Apple chose to remove the RSS feeds. I doubt Steve Jobs would have approved. Encouraging Safari users to leave Safari to read content in another application makes absolutely no sense. This is something I would have expected from Microsoft and not Apple. Hopefully, Safari 6.0.1 brings back RSS. I have sent feedback to Apple. I encourage others to do the same.

    I've tried Vienna and EtreFeed now. Neither provide me with the integrated experience that Safari <6 provided. The "update" count in the toolbar, the summary list of entries with one click and a hot link to the source page... they all belong in Safari.


    Please ask Apple to bring RSS functionality back to Safari.

  • jmrdc Level 1 (0 points)

    We get it.  You work for Vienna.  Still want RSS back in Safari.

  • RaceManRocks Level 1 (0 points)

    Enough with the alternative options, kindly express these thoughts in a separate forum.



    Just Send Feedback once a day to Apple untill they return RSS support in Safari.

    But the thing is you have to switch to Safari and go looking for it. With notifications, you need only look at the notification. If you have many notifications, they will be automatically consolidated. If you want to be in control of the timing, just set the alert styel for that application to "None". Nothing will pop up but you can always check notifications without switching apps with a single click or gesture.

    You don't understand. We don't have to switch to Safari, we are already in Safari surfing the web and while we do so we could previously see with a number if there were any new articles that we could read after we were finished with our current task. Your workflow is completely different and it's just not what we want. Taking RSS out of Safari was a horrible mistake. Horrible.
