    Web Browser-based Feed Aggregators - Closing Thoughts

    (Page 5 of 5 )

    Closing Thoughts

    Throughout this article we covered web browser-based RSS syndication. We have seen how the most popular browsers are managing these feeds, and we reviewed some of the most efficient Firefox extensions, which increases the news aggregation for Firefox users. The extensions deserved recognition.

    Should you need some kind of RSS plug-in to improve your Internet Explorer, then I'd advocate checking out Built-in RSS Client and RSS Feeds Toolbar. Both of these perform quite well. The latter is a toolbar that works the best for users that don't have a very large number of feeds.

    The Built-in RSS Client simulates a dedicated standalone client. You can import and export OPML-format, you can customize the time interval for refreshing feeds, and the "newspaper" view isn't neglected. Notification works through an icon that is located on your Windows tray. You also have a function called "autodiscovery" that automatically discovers feeds from visited sites, which allows you to subscribe more easily.

    Unfortunately, we cannot cover "plug-ins" and "widgets" for browsers like Safari and Opera because we'd run out of space, but according to the statistics, both of them score below two percent as far as popularity goes. Besides, Safari performs amazingly well right "out of the box" in the area of news aggregation. Opera's solution is nothing outstanding, but its Outlook-like simplicity may be preferred by average users.

    Thanks for reading and I hope my article was informative. All the best!
