Just tried it, and you're right! Feels quite similar to Akregator, and has 
no problems with web sites.

I found one drawback: It cannot download some images from KDE-Look, the 
background menu only allows to zoom in or out. Dragging the image into a 
Dolphin window works though.

It's the same with Akregator and Webkit (there I don't even have the menu), 
but when I start to drag the image and stop, it looks like it is being 
displayed with KHTML instead of Webkit now, and I get a context menu that 
allows saving.

A little while ago I would have switched to Liferea at once, but since I 
found out how to use Akregator with Webkit and since it saves the session 
(it crashes multiple times per day), it is well usable.

For the moment, I have the Liferea window grouped to the Kontact window, and 
will play with both this and Akregator. Thanks for the tip,
