RSS in Firefox

Do you use RSS? Really Simple Syndication is a super convenient way of tracking your favourite news and general "goings on".

When Internet Explorer releases version 7 later this year it will include the ability to read RSS… but if you want to be one of the cool kids, you can enjoy the benefits now with Firefox. Need a quick primer on RSS? Here's a great resource.

Firefox can take advantage of RSS in 2 ways.

  1. The built in feature called "live bookmarks". Basically, it becomes a folder in your bookmarks menu with the newest posts.
  2. By using an extension called " Sage". You’ll notice that anything I bookmark in sage appears in my sidebar. Any new stories that I haven’t read are bolded.
