How do you keep an eye on 889 websites a day without going crazy?
There’s only one way and it’s thanks to RSS Feeds and a good Feed Reader. Hit update all and a few minutes later you see a summary of everything that has changed since last time you checked in. I use RSS feeds at work to monitor CAD Blogs, Newsgroups, Web Forums and even work related web searches (company name etc). I use them at home to monitor feeds on many subjects from Arts to Weather and everything in between. I use a common feed-list which I transfer on usb drive to make sure I never read the same post twice.
My favourite, OK my only, RSS feed reader has just been updated. I like RSS Bandit as it’s a local application, not web based, but supports sync'ing the feed list and read state between home & work. There are many new features in the “Jubilee 22.214.171.124” release but my favourites are the addition of favicons to the feed-list & comment watching. Some other nice improvements are detailed in Dare’s post along with download details.
A huge thanks to Dare (seen below), Torsten and the rest of the RSS Bandit community for making the best feedreader I’ve found.
