Abilon is a RSS feeds aggregator. You can store interesting items in memories for later retrieval. In addition, you can set archival options for each feed so that recent items are retained even when they are removed from the feed. This is very useful for catching up on news after a long vacation.

Note: You can make Abilon support enclosures by editing the file "rssitem.templ" in the "Themes" folder and append "<<RSSITEM.ENCLOSURES>>" at the end of the file (no quotes). Then restart Abilon and it will display links to the enclosures at the bottom of each feed message. Thanks to "PJ"

Runs on:Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: Application folder
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and install to the default folder C:\Program Files\Abilon
  2. Copy all files (except Uninstall.exe) to a folder of your choice
  3. Finally, uninstall the program
  4. Create an empty subfolder called UserData in the application folder so that settings will be written locally instead of the user profile folder
  5. Launch Abilon.exe

very nice RSS. better than GreatNews and Even FeedReader IMO. Easy on eyes, fast. Just enough features.

I agree that this app should be removed for the reasons already stated.

no unicode support is a serious deal breaker for me..

quite heavy and uncomfortable in managing feeds if you consider it is a dedicated app ......portable Opera, despite of the heaviness (...naturally due to its being a multipurpose program) is much more manageable...

Doesn't show Latin words like: á é ú ã â, etc...

It also looks like this download has been 'portablized' already. Sweet.

Seems like someone forgot to renew his domain! I have added a direct download link for this app.

Download sites seems to be offline - at least I cannot find a link for downloading; neither on abilon.org nor www.activerefresh.com
