I use Feedindicator to be alerted of new RSS news.
It is perfect for me in terms of UI, but it freezes randomly, making it unusable for me.

Is there any similar software for Ubuntu Unity?

  • Run as an Ubuntu Unity status menu indicator
  • Color changes when there is a new item
  • Clicking on an item marks it as read and opens my favorite browser on that item's link
  • Possibility to mark all items as read from the UI
  • Possibility to add a feed from the UI
  • Support for Atom and most RSS formats
  • Must be Open Source

I am open to other concepts, but anyway here is how Feedindicator looks like:

  • Thunderbird! It only consumes 1 GB of RAM. :D I know people who are happy with Akregator.
