Foxish Live RSS: Get Firefox Live Bookmarks Feature In Chrome

Foxish Live RSS is a Chrome extension that mimics Firefox’s live bookmarks feature by syncing RSS feeds with bookmark folders, and updates them automatically at regular intervals. It does this by syncing feed items every five minutes, with folders on the bookmark bar. It shows an icon in the address bar, indicating the web page has RSS/atom feeds. Foxish Live RSS also lets you export RSS feed list, and import RSS in OPML format from other RSS readers.

After you’ve installed the extension, click the RSS icon in the address bar to add RSS feeds. The icon appears as soon as it detects RSS feeds on websites. Clicking this icon will open the Foxish Live RSS page, from where you can select a folder, and enter feed name.
