I tried Brief, Brook Fead Reader and Feedbro, but they're far far behind NewsFox (which is discontinued and for which I keep separate Fx 56 installation). Life must go on, though; before NewsFox I was using another RSS reader and barely imagined life without it -- and now I can't even recall its name :)
I guess I'll dump all Quantum good-for-nothing feed/live bookmarks readers (for now I use Drop Feeds) and start using Tiny Tiny RSS on my server. Oh, well.
I understand Interlink (a brand new thunderbird fork) has in addition to mail, RSS support, http://binaryoutcast.com/projects/interlink/ one of those apps built on the Unified XUL Platform.
Oooh, interesting, thanks :)

Great to hear UXP is seeing some attention. Interlink sounds interesting though it could use with a modern website to give the impression it's current. The theme they've chosen feels very old school to me which may give some potential users the wrong idea.

I think the best of both worlds would definitely be Quantum's performance through Servo integration with UXP whilst keeping the addon APIs they have obliterated in favour of WebExtensions. Mozilla has tried to sell us a load of BS when it suggests that many of the cut-and-run decisions it's made are necessary to get the performance improvements from Quantum.

Interlink was built from a little crowd-sourcing, the developer stood up and volunteered to create a new fork of TB using UXP and the crowd responded. He has had his cash, he built it and will support it for a year. His clients are small in number but they paid for it and that's all he needs. There won't be many changes to the site I suspect.

Audacity is a fine open source tool that I use to create my desktop programs. I assign various sounds to events to give my creations some 'flesh'. Without the sounds, I dare to say that the programs would lose half of their character. To capture some of the unique sounds I use a separate microphone through the laptop's 2.5mm jack and record them using Audacity. I also use Audacity to manipulate any open source sounds that I have downloaded from sites such as freesound.org.

Audacity is a fantastic tool that allows you to manipulate multiple sounds to create projects that you can re-open to change again at any time you require.

I mentioned LiceCap a few posts ago. It is a screen video capture tool that captures to GIF file format. It is simply the easiest of the screen capture tools to use and is a delight to operate, I cannot recommend any other tool over it.

My trouble is that I cannot use it as it will not capture my programs. My programs run on a layer that sits between the desktop and just under the Windows applications. My current laptop has an integrated Intel GPU and all that the tool captures is my bare desktop background and icons or the Windows applications above. This may be due to the GPU hardware as the previous laptop with an Nvidia GPU worked perfectly.

I would still recommend you use Licecap over all the other tools mentioned here, if it works for you and you want to capture GIFs, once tried, you will never revert.
