Inline RSS viewing in Konqueror

Thu Nov 06, 2008 11:48 pm
One of the major things which is holding me back from using Konqueror is the fact that there is no way of viewing RSS feeds with it, you have to use something like Akregator.

What I'm look for is some similar way to view RSS feeds like in Safari or Firefox when having this sidebar extension installed.

Does anybody know if something is being developed? I found something about an RSS plugin for Konqueror, but that's probably the plugin which displays a little icon in the status bar when a feed is present which you can click to bookmark a feed in Akgregator.

As far as I know, Konqueror is a container and it contains kparts or kioslaves, there is no difference between using a separate program and embed programs inside konqueror.

The whole idea of KDE is to "let each kde applications do one thing and all kde applications work together by embed or call each other", it is hard to see any features duplicated within KDE applications, so I don't the designer of konqueror will duplicate akregator features inside konqueror. On the contrary, embed akregator into konqueror might be possible.

I agree Konqueror shouldn't reinvent the wheel regarding RSS parsing. So embedding a part of Akregator in Konqueror seems like a very good option to me.
