RSS Methods

Read this Read/Write Web posting for an interesting taxonomy of RSS methods for reading postings based on a small survey. The variety surprised me. The poll shows how things are changing. I still remain amazed that most surveys show that people don’t know when they are using RSS and too many library pros don’t use aggregators to make their loves easier.
Here’s the main headings:
1. Web-based (e.g. Bloglines, Google Reader, Rojo)
2. Desktop (e.g. FeedDemon, NetNewsWire)
3. Start page (e.g. Netvibes, Pageflakes)
4. Browser (e.g. Firefox Live Bookmarks, IE, Flock)
5. Portal-based (e.g. MyYahoo, ThePortNetwork)
6. Other (please comment)
7. Email-based client (e.g. Thunderbird, Newsgator)
8. I subscribe to emails from individual blogs
