    Hi, just wanted to let you know of a typo in the title for the Malwarebytes Browser Extension. It should be “Extension” instead of “Exrtension”.

      Thank you! Just updated the post to fix the typo. 🙂

    what about newsfox and fire gestures, oh and good old Pocket (formerly read it later)?

      It’s not that bad… for RSS you can use web-application (Feedly), mobile application or a desktop application.
      For gestures you can also find desktop application (and you will be able to control every app with it, not just web-browser).
      And for Pocket there is an alternative: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/in-my-pocket/
