2. Using Feeds > 2.1. Web-Based Applications

Web-Based Applications

The earliest, and still perhaps the most common, method of reading syndication feeds, the web-based application is a convenient way to stay up to date whereever you find yourself. It’s especially good if you use more than one computer. In this section, when I talk about web-based applications, I mean applications hosted elsewhere, by other people. Applications that use your browser as the interface and sit on your local machine are in the next section.

Bloglines

Bloglines (http://www.bloglines.com) may not have been the first web-based aggregator, but it is certainly the most popular today (see Figure 2-1). It’s free to use and very slick, offering email subscriptions, services for webloggers, and an interesting Application Programming Interface.
