msfeedicon version 2.3 has been released

April 30th 2007 in Uncategorized

I love this little programme, which is a free RSS plugin for IE7.  It adds an icon to your system tray and displays when you have unread posts in your subscribed RSS feeds.  It can be downloaded here:

msfeedicon offers the following features:

  • Icon in the system tray indicating status of you feed subscriptions

  • Displays notifications when a feed contains new posts (customisable)

  • Automatically marks a feed as read (customisable)

  • Force an update on all feeds

  • Star a notification for later reading

  • Mark as read without viewing the feed

  • Cancel subscription from notification window

  • Searching the new posts for specific Tags so you can select which posts are interesting to you

  • Feed statistics

  • Install and uninstall program

  • Shows notifications when a new version of msfeedicon exists (customisable)

  • Enable or disable the automatic synchronization of Windows RSS platform

  • Presentation mode aware (Windows Vista only)

Personally I prefer msfeedicon to Feeds Plus (even though Feeds Plus was developed by the IE RSS team) because Feeds Plus just didn’t behave well on my system and it isn’t as feature rich as msfeedicon, but if you want to compare the products, Feeds Plus can be downloaded here:

You can find my previous comments about Feeds plus here:

I originally spotted this article thanks to Harry Waldron’s blog, and what I read there saddens me.
Many of us have known for a while that the primary reason the bad guys infect our computers has changed from “I’ve got the biggest schwang because I infected the most PCs” script kiddy bragging to financially and criminally […]
