Cannot Live Without Safari's RSS
Authored by: bedouin on Feb 03, '06 09:24:59PM

Honestly. Since Safari 2.0 came out I've been a huge fan of its RSS integration. The key to really getting the most out of Safari's RSS is to just make one bookmark folder in your bookmark bar for all your favorite RSS feeds. You get an update of how many new articles are available and can check them all out just by clicking "view all RSS articles."

Other things that help:

* Sort your articles by new
* Color new articles with a nice color (orange works)
* Check for updates in reasonable intervals depending on how long you're in front of the machine
* Open your new RSS feeds in one tab and middle / command click all articles into new tabs

Unfortunately the average person toying with RSS will never go through all this trouble. For me though, it's invaluable. Instead of visiting 25 sites a day wading through trash I get a one page summary and decide if I even want to read further. 3 or 4 hours of browsing gets compressed into 45 minutes to an hour.

I do the same as you and use Safari RSS with a bookmark bar folder (though I read each feed by itself). I now get ALL the news from about 20 sites while I'm enjoying my morning coffee. Many sites also look better in RSS!

The .Mac sync also updates what I've read at work so when I get home I don't have to read them all again to find the new stuff. I'm addicted!
