It's Time for an RSS Revival [wired.com]
Tired of Twitter? Facebook fatigued? It's time to head back to RSS.
No matter what your current disposition, though, in this age of algorithmic overreach there's something deeply satisfying about finding stories beyond what your loudest Twitter follows shared, or that Facebook's News Feed optimized into your life. And lots of tools that can get you there.
Chrome does not support RSS
It's Time for an RSS RevivalI certainly hope not. RSS access is a throwback to the past before strict security measures became necessary.

I certainly hope not. RSS access is a throwback to the past before strict security measures became necessary.
RSS feedcheckers remain one of the most abused access agents, capable of undectected site hijacks and copyright theft.
You seem to be referring to RSS software and user agents that may be abusing your site in some way.Correct, I implied nothing more. If the popularity of RSS goes through a revival, more software will spring up to accommodate it, thus more potential content hijacking & scraping to keep track of and guard against.
This is what Google recommends:
Google can't restrict users from accessing it (your content.) One solution is to configure your site to serve a 404, 410, or other error status message to user-agent Feedfetcher-Google.
RSS is undead [techcrunch.com]
RSS died. Whether you blame Feedburner, or Google Reader, or Digg Reader last month, or any number of other product failures over the years, the humble protocol has managed to keep on trudging along despite all evidence that it is dead, dead, dead.
Now, with Facebook’s scandal over Cambridge Analytica, there is a whole new wave of commentators calling for RSS to be resuscitated.
Let's bring back Usenet and Bulletin Board Systems, too!
Can't see any reason for my site to publish one though.
under normal use, do RSS retrievers transmit using TLS security?Do they connect to the feed file negotiating a secure handshake?
