Google Chrome Support for RSS Feeds


If you have used Firefox, Opera or Safari it has native support for RSS feeds. You can preview or subscribe to your favorite feed using native feed reader. But in Google chrome it doesn’t do. Google chrome is the only browser which lacks native support for rss feeds.

You can achieve this using an chrome extension called ” RSS subscription extension “. Actually before seeing about the extension, this is what Google chrome engineer says why they haven’t added it to the browser by default, ” He says that, they first decided to bundle it with browser by default, but many people don’t consume rss feeds and also the orange color would be distracting, so they thought to let it out as extension and Google chrome many features are extension gallery ”

RSS Subscription Extension adds one-click subscription to your toolbar. This extension auto-detects RSS feeds on the page you are reading and upon finding one will display an RSS icon in the Omnibox, allowing you to click on it to preview the feed content and subscribe.

The extension comes with 4 feed readers predefined (Google Reader, iGoogle, Bloglines and My Yahoo) but also allows you to add any web-based feed reader of your choice to the list.
