For my RSS feeds, you know I use Feedly, but if you’re looking for something a little different that doesn’t require an online service or a subscription or anything, here’s Fraidycat.
This desktop application / Chrome and Firefox extension allows you to follow online content by segmenting it into themes and above all by specifying their priority.
And it doesn’t matter if it’s a blog, a Twitter account, an Instagram feed, a YouTube channel, etc., you will be able to follow your favorite creators without being subjected to notifications or “unread” elements.
So rather than dragging you a huge news feed, you simply have a sorted and categorized list of recent content. And if you are logged in with your browser account (like Firefox Sync), your follows will be accessible from your other machines.
As you will have understood, Fraidycat is more a tool that allows you to follow people than to follow the media and thus escape the whirlwind of current events to keep only the authentic and the essential.
