Why do I bother to do this to myself?
RSS has failed for me with Google Reader.
It’s failed for me with Opera.
Today I discovered the Live Bookmark feature of Firefox.
All I have to do is look at a Bookmark to see new headlines.
No more (very, very slow) hopping from site to site.
We’ll see how long this lasts.
Update: It turns out the default is to check a feed every hour. That’s worthless. So I found an Add-On that improves the experience and now will check feeds every five minutes and also lets me mark everything as Read. We’ll see how this goes.
Update 2: Oh yes. This is working wonderfully! No more jumping to a site to see something I’m not interested in or finding out there’s nothing new. The acid test will be coming up later. Having feeds checked while I’m in a live chat session with streaming video incoming.
