Mistakes were made on my part so I'm editing the review to reflect that.

My old review

It worked at first but then all my feeds got deleted along with every option I changed, If I pin the app all my feeds get deleted, if the app crashes all my feeds get deleted and lastly I accidentally hit the sleep key on Windows and you guessed it... All my feeds got deleted!

If that didn't happen I would've loved this app to bits... I'd pay for it since it does everything else so well... But, what's the point if all my feeds get deleted if anything at all happens?

Note

All of the comments above were made while I was using the portable version from portableapps.com. The version on the developer's website does not contain that issue, I thought they were one in the same but that was not the case.

My new review

The app works perfectly once you download the portable version from the creator's website. It has a folder structure, tags, supports Youtube channels (limited by google's RSS policy of only showing the last 15 videos, but you can use a third party feed if you requite the backlog) its behavior is quite customizable down to the sound it makes to alert you of new feeds, to how and where it open the links. It's simple usable and practical

The best RSS feed reader! I use it even for navigation, and AdBlock is integrated! There are plenty of features and integrations, labels system allows to classify the stream, and the filter system allows to labels, bookmarks or move entries automatically!

Everything is customizable, even the interface, really excellent and there are "pocket" integrated in the "Sharing" function, it can be used for bookmarking !.

Really the top, it does not consume too many resources, have can even customize favicons...

Try it you will not be disappointed!

It just still missing LastPass integration, which would be even better would be to integrate CRX or XPI addons, but this surely need to reprogram everything ^^"

Finally, it would be cool to put small addons, because I use a lot with firefox, and its great. ;)

(if you use the address bar of the browser function, remember to press "Enter" on the numeric keypad! (right of [. del] on a QWERTY keyboard)

Wonderful application. Displays news feeds like it should, and is fully configurable. Doesn't require to pay for anything. Doesn't require a subscription. Doesn't require to create an account. Is not a "plugin", it is a real "program". Well done, congrats.

Simple, fast and free, but sometimes unstable. Anyway, it's still my RSS reader out of many many options.

Greatest ever RSS reader with lots of features like tags, filters, custom column sets for each feed or folder, just to name a few. However, there are lots of bugs and the program can freeze almost at any moment. And it seems to be somewhat discontinued since there were no updates in more than a year despite the problems...

A few years ago, I discovered RSS and thought that it would be useful to have feeds of information that I cared about coming in every so often. I went about looking for a suitable RSS feed reader, and the first one I found was QuiteRSS.

I don't consider myself a power user when it comes to RSS stuff. However, for basic usage, QuiteRSS has performed its job sufficiently well, which is why I give it 5 stars. A (nearly) flawless experience with QuiteRSS deserves such a rating. The only bug that I've encountered is that if QuiteRSS is running and I press "Shutdown" on my Linux Mint 19 computer, QuiteRSS will shutdown, but in the meantime will halt the shutdown process of the rest of the computer. Strange bug. I don't experience it on my MX machine. It's probably a configuration error somewhere unrelated to QuiteRSS.

Of the few times I've poked around in its settings, I have seen a variety of features: keeping your feeds organized, controlling the behavior of your RSS fetch requests, and customizing the interface of the program itself, to name a few. I'm sure that if you enjoy fine-tuning your RSS feed reading experience, QuiteRSS will let you do that.
