Link: Find Your Own RSS Reader in Mountain Lion ☍

Shared on February 21, 2012

Shawn Blanc commenting on a post by Brent Simmons about RSS being removed from Safari and Mail in OS X Mountain Lion:

…But even still, those who use RSS as a way to follow news are the exception, not the norm. And since you can follow most news sites via Facebook and Twitter, RSS isn’t getting any more popular.

Not to mention, of all those who do use RSS, how many use Mail or Safari to follow their RSS feeds? I don’t know a single person who does.

I’ve found myself using a mix of Twitter and RSS (years ago, everything was RSS) for my needs, with Reeder being my RSS client of choice on all my devices.
