Feedly Subscribe Button Extension

The “Feedly Subscribe Button” is a very useful browser extension for the Feedly.com users. It enables them to easily subscribe to RSS and Atom feeds in Feedly. It is available for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera browsers.

The extension simply places its icon on the browser toolbar of Chrome, and in the address bar of Firefox and Opera. Whenever, it detects RSS or Atom feeds on any web page, its icon becomes active. Users can now click this icon, which will take them to Feedly.com with the option to subscribe that feed.

Technically, this extension is a fork of “RSS Subscription Extension” by Google with three changes: It is a dedicated extension for Feedly and doesn’t support other RSS readers as by the original extension. It doesn’t hijack raw RSS URLs (like this one). And, it directly connects users to the Feedly without showing up an intermediate subscription page.

How To Use

Install it from the Chrome Web Store, Mozilla AMO or Opera add-ons gallery. Once installed, visit any web page which offers RSS feeds (for example, this blog offers RSS feeds, open this page in a new tab or refresh) and you would notice that the extension’s icon on Chrome’s toolbar (or in address bar of Firefox and Opera) turns active, as shown in the above screenshots. Click on this button to subscribe feeds offered by the site. If no feed is detected, the icon appears grayed out.

This extension doesn’t track your browsing activities or usage in any way. Have any feedback or suggestion? Leave a comment below, or contact us at browsernative.apps@gmail.com. If you like this extension, please rate it 5-stars on Chrome Web Store and Mozilla AMO.

    Good job, guys.

    Surprised Feedly doesn’t support this out-of-the-box.

    Any talks with them, guys?

    It’d be great if there was an option to exclude displaying Comments feeds.

    Say a blog has two feeds: Posts and Comments. If I have the “ignore comments” option enabled, when I click the green Feedly button it should _automatically_ open the Posts feed, without showing the feed selector tooltip.
