New RSS reader

RSS (I guess) is one of the most usefull and common XML dialects. Especially for me. Beside XHTML RSS is the one I use most. Until about 10 minutes ago I used Liferea for RSS reading, which is indeed a cool and clean tool. But what gives you a good tool, if you forget to use it? What I wanted was to have my RSS feeds integrated to my email client and I found what I wanted:

Forumzilla is an extension for Thunderbird. It's currently "pre-alpha" rated, but did not make any problems until now. It uses a simple file "subscriptions.txt" which contains URLs to RSS feeds (1 per line) and creates a folder for each feed in Thunderbird. Pretty small, but pretty nice! :)
