Get More Feeds and News

Not getting enough information? You have several different ways to get more in Firefox.

This hack introduces you to the push content that a couple of extensions—Sage and ForecastFox (previously named WeatherFox)—make possible. Push content comes to you without you asking, or at least without you asking much.

Get Feeds with Sage

Long before Live Bookmarks came out in Firefox 1.0, Sage, a sidebar extension (shown in Figure 4-6), provided RSS and Atom feed aggregation in the Firefox sidebar. It’s still a very useful extension.

Sage provides full-service feed aggregation. It includes a feed preview rendered in the contents area; a tooltip description of each item in the feed, usually containing a brief excerpt of the article; the ability to mark items as read or unread; and many other features.
