Just edited your 'feedreader.js' file and added to the 'html2text' function some Spanish language HTML symbols for text replacement, because many Spanish feeds are not using UTF-8 yet. Hope this is an appropriate solution (for personal use only) and you don't mind my little 'mod' :) Very nice & useful applet, thank you and congrats for your thorough work.

Hi. How can I delete RSS list? Where is some config file?

Does not seem to work.

1. It would be nice if the configuration have an option to define the favicon URL, these favicons can be used during the notification osd and in notification logs. 2. It would be great if we have one more option for categorization, as of now as there is no such thing this mixes all the news sources in one location, a categorization option can help to arrange the RSS sources in different categories.

Cool. Wish this was also available as a Desklet. LOL

love this applet, but any chance it could get updated to follow the gtk theme? it looks a bit off

It doesn't seem to work for me. I click on the notification, nothing happens. There is no way to access the list of new RSS Feed entries, much less click to be able to load it in the browser. I am testing this on Linux Mint v19.3 Cinnamon 64-bit.

New feeds saved do not display, reverts back to LinuxMint feeds only. Tried many different feeds and none would display news items after being saved.
