Why You Should Use RSS

I ♥ the web. Well, who doesn’t? One way of keeping us updated with our popular sites and blogs is through RSS feeds.

RSS (Rich Site Summary) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.

RSS solves a problem for people who regularly use the web. It allows you to easily stay informed by retrieving the latest content from the sites you are interested in. You save time by not needing to visit each site individually. You ensure your privacy, by not needing to join each site’s email newsletter. The number of sites offering RSS feeds is growing rapidly and includes big names like Yahoo News.

There are several popular RSS feed stand-alone and web-based applications. Right now, I’m using Feed Notifier and RSSOwl. Simply put, Feed Notifier just notifies you by popping up every time a new  feed arrives. On the other hand, RSSOwl has a pretty nice UI. Aside from notifying you with pop-ups, you can navigate each of your favorite sites and blogs, including those feeds that RSSOwl recommends you upon installation.

Here’s a preview of my RSSOwl feeds: I included my Gmail, Facebook and Yahoo Mail, too.

How about you, which RSS feeder are you using?
