Just installed the RSS Explorer tool bar (via Lockergnome) and I like it a lot already. It will search for an XML feed when I’m on a site and then with a click it will subscribe it to BlogLines or a bunch of other aggregators. It even has a link to check whether or not your feed validates.
On a side note, more and more people are catching on to RSS. Surfing the Net with Kids now has one:
“It’s a classic case of throwing the baby out with the bath water. RSS avoids the dual problems of spam and spam filters because you do not need to divulge your email address to anyone (no more spam) and only you control your list of subscriptions (sidestepping spam filters entirely.) ” (via Scripting News)
Chris Pirillo has been evangelizing about this lately, and it’s another selling point to people (read: parents and teachers) to give it a try.
