RSS readers are web services allowing users to subscribe to RSS feeds online and view them. If Firefox detects a feed, it offers the user to subscribe to it, either as a live bookmark or via one of the web services.

The current RSS Readers in en-US are Bloglines, My Yahoo, Google.

We want to ship a good set of defaults for Bengali, and will work towards that in three stages.

First, the localization team and Stas (Stas Malolepszy) will look at the market for the language and come up with a good candidates. Jamil, we'll need your input on this, the guidelines for making recommendations are on After we decided on a particular RSS reader, Stas will contact the owner and ask for permission. undefined, we'll likely need your help to at least get the contact information.

Once we have a specification on what the set of RSS readers for Bengali should look like, the localization team and Stas will work on an implementation on that. This should happen by the localization team creating and attaching patches for the desired changes, and requesting review from Stas. After a successful review, the localization team will land them. If you're not feeling comfortable with creating those changes, ask Stas to help out.

Please don't commit any modifications in l10n/bn-BD/browser/chrome/browser-region/ to the cvs repository without a patch reviewed by Stas, Axel or someone else appointed by Stas/SethB. The data here is sensitive to users and our search partners, thus the extra care here.

Hi Jamil: Any progress here?  We'd love to see your recommendations on good candidates for the feed readers for bn-BD.
For bn-BD it can be,

My Yahoo, and
Pageflakes (
Thanks Jamil for the suggestions. I e-mailed Pageflakes today asking about their permission and the URL that we could use. 

Have you considered ? It's partially translated into Bengali, although I'm not able to tell if that's good enough for our bn-BD localization. Would you mind giving it a try? We could add it as a 4th choice if it made sense to you.
Oh I thought we can add upto 3 sites. Sure, we can try netvibes as there are number of users in Bangladesh. Yes, as a 4th choice. :)
Still no info from Pageflakes. I re-emailed them today again.

In the meantime, Jamil, would you like to create a patch adding Netvibes and removing Bloglines from The patch should look something like this:

Patch for including Netvibes.

Looks good, r=me. Please land this patch on branch (1.9.1) and trunk (l10n-central) using a descriptive check-in comment, mentioning the bug number and my review (e.g. "Bug 482520: Feed readers, remove Bloglines, add Netvibes, r=stas").

Still no reply from Pageflakes. Jamil, should we close this bug after you land Netvibes and file a new one (even after the 3.5 release) when we hear from Pageflakes?

Yes, we can file a new bug for Pageflakes.
Thanks Jamil. Marking as fixed1.9.1 then. Please close the bug when you land on trunk.
