Hi there,

Hi Federico,

I'm a very happy user of RSSowl, and I'd like to share with you my

(not only the news link) on machine's default browser instead of the
built in browser.

Moreover, such feeds will only be available in a minority of cases for many
users of an aggregator -- those who follow sites without visitor
involvement. If implemented, this could lead to clutter and thus user
frustration with GUI controls that are too fine, serve no function or are

I hope I have explained it all, if not don't hesitate to ask me for

These were good suggestions overall.
