To enable tabbed browsing in RSSOwl, open preferences and find the Miscellaneous section. Enable Show multiple tabs side by side and decide on the maximum of tabs to show below. This option greatly reduces the clutter of opened tabs by limiting the maximum number of tabs that will show at the same time. That's it. From now on you can have multiple feeds and websites open at the same time!
We think this is a great way of staying in touch with areas of your interest. You should give it a try!
I gave it a try and was able to speed up the startup time by 30%. Note that the quick starter is not running in case your notebook is running on battery power. Also note that as far as I know, this service is only provided on Windows XP.

The notifier feature in RSSOwl is capable of informing you as soon as news are downloaded. It can easily be enabled from the "Notifier" entry in preferences. Enabling this feature will show notifications for any downloaded news from all of your subscriptions.
Now, consider you only want to be notified about news that match a specific search (e.g. all news that contain a certain word or where the author is a specific person). Simply create this search as "Saved Search" with the desired conditions and set the Notifier to only show notifications for this search in preferences.
As soon as News Filters are implemented, this feature will even be easier to use.
Stay tuned for milestone 9!
