Feedbro, ideal for organizing all the news in a folder

If in doubt, this is one of the most popular extensions to be well informed in Firefox. We talk about a independent and complete source reader (RSS, Atom, RDF) with which we can keep up to date without having to waste time visiting dozens of websites, blogs, news sites and social networks every day, since we can do all of this using this plugin .

It has multiple viewing modes (article view, full view, headline view, newspaper view, magazine view, etc). It also has a built-in rules engine that will allow us to define rules for filtering, border highlighting, auto-marking, tagging, hiding and highlighting articles with regular expressions. In addition, it has IFTTT support, which allows us to receive notifications by email and SMS, as well as workflow automation.

If we want to be aware of all the news, we can install Feedbro in our Firefox browser from the Mozilla Store.

Smart RSS Reader, your news always updated instantly

This extension is a news manager that will allow us to follow the new publications that appear in our favorite websites (RSS and Atom) in a view of three panels through which they provide us with a quick loading of new articles, as well as organizing our sources in folders. It has a user interface with a clean and easy to use design, which consumes few system resources. It also has a preferences page where you can control its appearance and behavior.

Smart RSS Reader

From its central panel we will have two or three lines to check if the article interests us, and while we browse the headlines in the central panel a right panel automatically opens where we can read more about its content. All this from the extension and without having to access each of the news websites. Perhaps what we can miss is a “Mark all as read” button from the main window without requiring confirmation from the user.

We can download the latest version of the Smart RSS Reader extension from the Firefox Add-ons store.

NewsGuard, find out which news is reliable and which is not

We are talking about a well-known plugin, although a little different from what has been seen so far, although equally useful. This extension is responsible for using journalism to fight the spread of unreliable news. By classifying news with red/green labels, they are in charge of helping users to know and detect which news websites they can trust because they transmit verified and true information or which ones to distrust because they knowingly advertise falsehoods, which allows readers have a better context about the information we read on the Internet.

NewsGuard

News Guard displays your trust score for over four thousand news and information sites from countries like United States, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and France, in addition to reporting who is behind each site, how it is financed and if it can be trusted. Unfortunately, at the moment it is not available for news pages from Spain, so it will only be very useful if we usually read news from international media.

We can download and install News Guard from the Mozilla Store.

Which news extension for Firefox to choose?

As we have seen, we have different extensions available to access and organize all our favorite news websites in our Firefox browser and always be well informed without having to access each web page individually. When choosing one, it is always advisable to try them to see which of them best suits what we are looking for.

Likewise, within the options that we present to you, if we had to choose one of the main ways, this would be feedbro, since it is a very powerful extension with which we can organize our favorite news web pages or even our social networks to be able to access them from a single menu. In addition, with the inclusion of rules, everything can be configured and customized to our liking. With it we will see how with a small investment of time in its configuration it affects us in a wide speed when it comes to having access to all the information that interests us.
