Testing out the "Feeds" in the new Vivaldi 4.0. It's pretty good. Simple, to the point. No thrills no frills. Does the job. I wish it would sync over Vivaldi's online services, but maybe next version.
@piggo It's in the panel, but you might have to right click on it and make sure it's checked. It's a little hidden.
@scylla I'm not a huge fan of that either. I follow enough RSS feeds that I see hundreds of new items a day, and mixing that with my mail is just a non-starter. I'll probably just not use email (because I really hate email these days), and MAYBE use RSS, but so far I'd still prefer an RSS aggregator than using it in the browser. ESPECIALLY since it doesn't sync across devices. I jump from computer to phone and back again several times a day. Don't want to have to sift through my feeds again.
@mike ewwww it doesn’t sync either? Yikes.
I likely won’t use the email function either. At least not til they clean it up a bit.
@scylla Nope, not yet anyway. The email is OK as far as email is concerned, but since I tend to Archive my mail instead of delete it, I have between 30,000 and 40,000 emails in two different accounts. The mail indexer kicks off often enough and there's enough stuff there that it's making my computer work for it's money. Email should fade into the background if I'm going to have to put up with it at all.
@scylla @sanchez I like Spark on my phone, but unfortunately there's no Linux version. Not even a Windows version or a web interface. I don't have a modern Android tablet, so I have no idea how it works there, but if I'm going to suffer through email I prefer to do it where I have an actual physical keyboard to type on. Here's hoping they get things going on Linux soon, but I'd even take a Windows version in the interim.
@zoot Yea, it's a fun little distraction occasionally, but that was from a while back. They didn't change it for 4.0 did they?
