The History of RSS
RSS Reader Programs
Three Macintosh programs were demonstrated during the presentation.
- NetNewsWire (free)
Note: When you run the program for the first time, a window will ask if you wish to set up an account on NewsGator so feeds may be synced between multiple versions of NetNewsWire. If you do not intend to use this feature or have security concerns, click the "Skip this Step" button and you will not be asked again.
- Apple Mail
The version of Apple Mail which comes with Mac OS X 10.5+ has RSS features.
The version of Safari which comes Mac OS X 10.4+ has RSS features.
Other RSS Readers
RSS readers are also available for a wide variety of computers and mobile devices. Each program operates differently, so please read its documentation.
Below are sample RSS feeds arranged by category. A feed listing page is also noted when a Website offers multiple feeds.

The History of RSS
Here are Websites to learn more about the history of RSS. Please note that RSS was developed by many people, some of who made seperate "flavors" of RSS according to their own personal/corporate vision.
