Reclaiming RSS [ar.al]
Time was, you couldn’t browse the web without seeing RSS icons of all persuasions gracing the façades of Web 1.0’s finest. This was before they were mercilessly devoured by the tracking devices … ahem … “social sharing buttons” of people farmers like Google and Facebook.
There was also once a push for browsers to auto-detect and expose RSS feeds. Currently, none of the major browsers appears to do so.
It’s time to push back against this and demand first-class support for RSS as part of the move to re-decentralise the Web.
