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.

It would be nice if we weren't limited to 3rd party services like FeedBurner to display an RSS feed in a browser as a formatted web page. I do see growing interest in this topic as reflected in more articles like this. It's certainly not yet a massive groundswell of interest, but it's better than the complete silence on the topic since SNS share buttons became all the rage.
