The Polish l10n team has decided on a set of pre-defined web RSS feed readers for Firefox 2.

These are:

1) Startowy.com
2) Bloglines
3) My Yahoo
4) Google Reader
5) Netvibes.com

Startowy.com is the only web-based Polish RSS reader that can be used this way. 

For an example view of a public user page with some subscriptions, check http://marcoos.startowy.com/ (subscriptions may be also private, i.e. visible only to the user).

We are also including all the en-US readers, because they are widely used in Poland as well. And the fifth one, Netvibes, while not yet in Polish, is also widely used and offers a really nice service.
Patch.

Some information regarding Startowy.com.

Startowy.com is owned by gery.pl and we have their written approval for using Startowy in Firefox.

Our contact in Startowy/Gery.pl management is Michal Jankowski, michal.jankowski at firma.gery.pl.
Hi

We are OK to proceed but please also do the following: 
Please forward me the email from Michal Jankowski of Startowy with the authorization (I recognize this may be in polish). Also indicate if we have any kind of financial or contractual relationship with them? and also please elaborate as to why you think Startowy should be in the no 1 position versus Bloglines (a top provider and popular among most users)

I need to do more investigation in the Polish market in general so may come back to this bug at a future date.

Best
Mic

Does this mean I can check in that patch? It still waiting for review/approval...

Yes, it is in Polish, but I attached the translation of the most important part of it.

We (AviaryPL, the Polish localization team) have no such relationships with them and I don't think Mozilla Corp. does. :)

Bloglines is not localized, there is no Polish version of it. It seemed to me, that a site available in Polish should be listed first.

Regarding Polish web-based RSS readers, AviaryPL did a lot of research in this field and I can assure you that Startowy.com is simply the only real one at the moment. There are maybe 2 others that are barely usable, though.

Netvibes may have a Polish localization in future as well and is widely used here (more than Bloglines), so I included it as well.

Initially, we wanted the feed handlers list to include only:
1) Startowy
2) Google
3) Netvibes

but we decided to keep the en-US handlers as well after the limit was bumped up from 3 to 6.

For the discussion in Polish see http://bugs.aviary.pl/show_bug.cgi?id=912
We're also figuring out with Google Poland chances to get Google Reader localized for Fx 2.0

I don't think there will be any additional information regarding feed handlers here, as you've got the info from Startowy, and Netvibes is being dealt with in the French bug 350248.

I think we can resolve this bug as fixed now. :-)

Thanks Mic, thanks Pike. :)
