RSS Moves Closer To The Mainstream

By | March 7, 2004

More evidence, if it were needed, that RSS is moving mainstream.

eWeek reports that InfoSpace – who also own the dogpile, WebCrawler and metacrawler search sites — will add RSS feeds to the next release of its search toolbar. A setup feature called “Search Page” will scan an open Web page for RSS or Atom feeds, and then let a user decide whether to add them to the toolbar.

This year may well be the year of RSS feeds: Where they get easier to use, where the big players adopt them (I noticed a Microsoft feed the other day; perhaps they’ve been around for a while, I just haven’t seen an official one before) and where marketers find a way to make money out of them.
