I would like to subscribe to some RSS feeds. I originally had them in Mail, which worked just fine. But after upgrading to Mavericks, the RSS feeds disappeared, and I get this message when I click on an RSS feed link:

How do I subscribe to an RSS feed, if this won't work?

    RSS support was removed from Mail and Safari back in Lion (10.7), I think. You'll have to use a third-party app like NetNewsWire.

  • @daGUY I was using Lion before Mavericks, and it worked.

  • You're right, it was Mountain Lion that removed RSS from Mail, not Lion.

An option you might look into is Feedly. They have a Safari plugin (and probably other browsers) and work well enough.


As noted in the comments, Apple dropped support for RSS in Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8). You'll need a third-party RSS reader. Once you get one, you can get a subscribe button in Safari by installing Red Sweater's unsupported Safari Extension.


Tbodt I would recommend using Pronto Push app exclusively for OSX Mavericks!

  • Per the above re: ProntoPush - they went out of business. Just an FYI. >Well we gave it another try but unfortunately managing Pronto Push has taken up too much time and money. Thanks again to all the beta users!</p>&mdash; Pronto Push (@prontopush)

  • And now it looks like you're back, back yet again? The current page says "© ProntoPush 2014 - Beta 0.1 (Oct 25, 2014)"
