stay tuned on fresh news on other weblogs while using rss feed search engines like feedster or technorati. technorati monitors more than three million blogs in real time and feedster is the local news stand – “precise, fast and focused. we’ll keep you up to the minute and give you today’s internet, not the entire last decade.” feedster writes.
the obvious advantage is the up-to-dateness of these search engines compared to the “big guys” (google, yahoo, et al), google tends to be, on average, a month behind – here you’ll find the news of today.
rss (an acronym for “rich site summary” later coined “really simple syndication”) is a xml based data format and a way for web sites to summarize their content, such as news articles, to make it available in a different view.
