and roamed around. Also, then why bother to build firefox extensions?
p.s. I have been thinking of upgrading, but I decided to do that when I move
in the next month or so. Also, waiting to see if Walmart will have pre-installed
Xandros (so that everything works - no missing drivers, etc). Xandros-Skype
announcement today sounds like they'll do it.
KDE has a new news feed reader called akregator, which in my opinion is very good. Maybe Xandros will include it in their next release, then you will have the option of using that or Firefox/Thunderbird.
I have knewsticker on my computer. It's on a child toolbar. Headlines scroll across the screen, and when something catches my eye I'll click on the link. I like it much better than the nearest equivalent I've found for Windows XP.

aKregator is an awsome RSS reader....allows for grouping self updates and limits and more.Quite fast and never slows ya down or system.Works silently or flags the new updated news.Color lableing as well.view in the program...or in a browser.I can go on but why...it just works.
It came with my debian install
I have infoRSS for firefox but rarely use it.Its good for sites that dont update alot of news regularly or has seperate groups of feeds.I can view updated feeds in my favs...but thats it...clicking obviously opens a tab.No grouping etc etc.just basic.
do not use YASSR...crap as shit lags you bad and breaks and usually always sticks...then again I had well over 8thousand feeds...which by the way aKregator handles flawlessly and speedy.
Blam is also similar to aKregator....works just the same
