So I was looking at the row of extension buttons in Google Chrome, specifically hunting for the RSS Live Links icon so I could catch up on search news. When I realized…it was gone. I looked in my list of installed extensions to see if it had gotten switched to inactive for some reason. Nowhere to be found.
Where on earth did it go? I hunted around a bit, and found this.
As the original author of RSS Live Links, I sold the extension in January to what I thought would be a safe home. Unfortunately, that home then sold it on. I have contacted the new owners and have received a very curt reply that Google pulled the extension (I have not been told why) and that they are working to reinstate it.
I apologise to all for this – my intention when selling it was to ensure its continued survival in the face of my lack of time to maintain it.
Well, isn’t that unfortunate. Fortunately I found a good replacement: RSS Feed Reader. If you’re a Chrome user looking for a good RSS extension, seriously check it out. It’s everything RSS Live Links was and then some.
Now, if you’ll excuse me…I need to go hunt down a bunch of RSS feeds.
