SUMMARY

Fraidycat is a new type of single-page "reader" - a dashboard for monitoring social media accounts, discussion websites and blogs. Rather than showing you a massive inbox of new posts to sort through, you see a list of recently active individuals. The page updates as new posts are discovered. Fraidycat also focuses on "importance" - each account or website that you follow can be assigned a priority, whether you want to keep up in "Real-time" or if you "Rarely" want updates. In this way, you can track important "Real-time" follows on the front page, while lower priority items are hidden away. Other features are: - Sync. If you are logged in to Chrome, your follows will be synced between any Chrome browsers running the extension. - Import and export of your saved data to JSON, OPML and HTML files. - Tags. Follows can be categorized into separate tabs. Even emoji can be used as tags! - Concise. Rather than filling up your display with large posts, each follow is given two lines of summary. (See our screenshots.) - Live and pinned posts. If an account is currently 'live' or has 'pinned' posts, these are shown in that follow's status line. - Dark mode. You can alternate between light and dark themes. - Fraidycat supports most social networks and feed types. Fraidycat is a whole new concept in tracking creators on the Web. If you don't quite see how this is different from a classic feed reader, check out our video above to see the tool in action. "I did not expect how immediately and wholeheartedly I would appreciate and enjoy [Fraidycat] once I began to use it." - Jason McIntosh "I am enjoying the browser extension called Fraidycat, which presents a lovely, anarchic opportunity: follow all the people you like, no matter what platform they’re using, without having accounts on those platforms. Basically, it’s an 'RSS… or whatever' reader." - Robin Sloan "It’s really neat, and I’m already finding it a much more deliberate and less distracting way of surfing the modern web that doesn’t just involve me mindlessly refreshing social feeds and closing and opening various browser tabs like a rat in a maze." - Nick Statt, The Verge
