Viewing RSS Feed

An RSS Reader is used to read RSS Feeds!

RSS readers are available for many different devices and OS.

RSS Readers

There are a lot of different RSS readers. Some work as web services, and some are limited to windows (or Mac, PDA or UNIX). Here are a few I have tried and liked:

  • NewsGator Online - A free online RSS reader. Includes synchronization with Outlook, viewing TV content with Media Center Edition, and publication of blogs and headlines.
  • RssReader - A free Windows-based RSS reader. Supports RSS versions 0.9x, 1.0 and 2.0 and Atom 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3.
  • FeedDemon - A Windows-based RSS reader. Very easy to use and has a very orderly interface. However, this is not freeware!
  • blogbot - An RSS reader plug-in for Outlook or Internet Explorer. The light-version for Internet Explorer is free.

Tip: The Mozilla Firefox browser has a built-in RSS Reader. If you go to a web site that offers RSS feeds, you will see the Firefox RSS icon in the address bar. Click on the icon to view a list of the different feeds. Choose the feed you want to read.

I have an RSS Reader. Now what?

Click on the little RSS Logo or XML Logo button next to the RSS feed you want to read. Copy The URL you get in the browser window and paste it in your RSS reader.
